I read Brian Patten's poems as a much younger person. Revisiting his works, after one of the poems was read out at a funeral, I thought I would buy this collection for my Daughter. It is full of thought provoking, interesting and funny poems which she is enjoying. Speedy delivery. Book in immaculate condition. Very pleased with this purchase.

A lovely book of clearly understood, heartfelt poems for the modern age. An easily accessible and honest written work. I can relate to this book, written by the excellent Mr Patten of a life lived in the experience of joy and pain.

I bought this book for initially one particular poem, which I had read about (cannot remember where now).
Very thought provoking and I found I was enjoying more and more.
Would recommend.
