Format:Paperback
Poetry, columns and short stories all truly excellent.

My favourite

Razors pain you;
rivers are damp;
acids stain you;
and drugs cause cramp.
Guns aren't lawful;
nooses give;
gas smells awful;
you might as well live.

I bought this as a present. I have my own copy and love it - her wit and incisiveness are wonderful. Arrived quickly and in good condition.

5.0 out of 5 stars What's NOT to love.!! 27 April 2014
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
Brilliant Parker. Loads of her stories which are bitchy witty wicked and sometimes very very sad. And as for her poetry - it is to be laughed over, sighed over, and .... ho hum'ed over. Poor DP... but she LIVED bless her. Wish I'd had as much to reminisce over as she had. A Best Buy for anyone who is alive to being in love and not loved!
