Product description

Review readers’ reviews for ‘101 Poems To Save Your Life’:

‘I really enjoyed this book: beats all those “Feng Shui Your Cat” type anthologies and is definitely one I’d pass on to my friends because of its wit (and relevance) on the subjects of birth, marriage, death, and everything in between…I particularly liked one about “Going to Bed with a Cheese and Pickle Sandwich” – who needs a man when you’ve got instant gratification waiting in the fridge?’

‘With “101 Poems” now by my bedside table, I feel that I can conquer any problem that may arise in my life!! It is a “must have” for any person that needs that tiny bit of help to get past a difficult moment in a humourous and sensitive way, without having to leave the house.’


More witty and stylish poetic therapy for the Venus and Mars generation. This is the happy successor to the wonderfully popular 101 Poems To Save Your Life. Published to tie in with National Poetry Week, 101 Poems to Get You Through the Day (and Night) is a witty and stylish anthology designed as an antidote to the stresses of twenty-first century living. To help you find the right poem at the right time, day or night, 24-7, the book is arranged like a book of hours. Starting with 'Getting Out Of Bed', it then moves on to those other morning traumas: Stepping On The Scales and Looking In the Mirror. As the day moves on there are sections covering everything from Office Politics to the School Run. And if by 5 p.m. your head is throbbing, the poems in the Take 5 section will help the world recede. For readers who are considering having a quick one of whatever variety, the 'Going Home' collection should keep you on the straight and narrow; but if it is too late for second thoughts then turn to the 'Behaving Badly' poems which will equip you with all the excuses you need.

And for anyone who feels vaguely guilty about settling down in front of the TV instead of taking cafe society by storm then turn to the poems in the 'Not Tonight' section. From life's major crises to its minor irritations. There are poems for ancient miseries like toothache and relationship problems to those for more modern afflictions such as dieting, driving tests and the computer helpline. The poems here include both classics and contemporary works.
