Review

"

Unique ... worthily the 'people's poet Mail

" (Daily Mail)

"

Delightfully self-deprecating autobiography ... his prose is lovely, considered, concise and frequently frivolous, but it never strays far from the poetry that is his natural environment and, essentially, his subject

" (The Independent on Sunday)

"A warm-hearted book about the extraordinary life of an extraordinary man. He may choose to depict himself as Mr Ordinary, but there is nothing at all ordinary about his energy or talent" (Independent)

Book Description

The extraordinary life story of 'the patron saint of poetry', Roger McGough

From the Publisher

The extraordinary life story of the 'the patron saint of poetry', Roger McGough --This text refers to the Hardcover edition.

From the Back Cover

Roger McGough is one of Britain's best-loved poets, whose humour, distinctive voice, and sharp eye for the idiosyncrasies of everyday life, have made him a household name. Since enjoying overnight success with The Scaffold, whose song Lily the Pink reached the number one spot worldwide, he has moved in a seemingly contradictory world where poetry coexists with comedy and pop music, becoming one of the leading lights of British poetry for children and adults alike.

Like the best of his poetry, his autobiography is packed with humour, honesty, surreal observations, nostalgic reminiscences and poignant, bittersweet tales

of love, life and loss.
