10 of 10 people found the following review helpful By ken@pepperpot.fsnet.co.uk on 11 Mar 2000
Format: Paperback
Simply written, easy to read with a good layout alternating between short stories and poems. The book can be read cover to cover in a few hours.The short prosaic stories are the strength of the collection as the poems are mainly for children which seems incongrous in a book presumably aimed at adults . Ian centres his work around his everyday life in Barnsley as he examines seemingly mundane aspects such as attics, season tickets, bus rides, football matches,and people in pubs ,barbers and chip shops. However he manages to weave these threads together into a snapshot taken from a fresh angle, that of an observer of the coincidences and contradictions of the human condition. Anyone interested in writing will be encouraged to find inspiration by reflecting on the daily magic in their own lives.

Oh my goodness, saw McMillan on tv and he seemed really good so I sent for this book. Oh dear, what a load of bunkum. I can't understand how he's sold any work!
