i know that if the poetry is good the price should not matter but really faber & faber are taking liberties. ok, published price £5.99, not expensive; 84pp, reasonable. 5 of those pages are section title pages, and several poems are no more than 6 lines long, indeed some are only couplets. i'm glad i bought this on amazon (noticeably reduced!) because otherwise i might have felt a bit cheated. that said, however, it's a neat little book for stuffing in a bag or in a pocket, to bring a smile during a boring bus or train journey to/from work.
