There were the occasional hits, a lot of below average and a lot of misses.
And WHY the tiny font? Loads of space and yet the font size is annoyingly small - doesn't help keep you sane if you struggle to read it!
To the reviewer Persia I'd only say: perhaps laughter IS the best counter to stress - only when you're stressed (we used to call it 'worried' or 'cross', two quite different things) you CAN'T laugh; this is to buoy you up for next time precisely by gently deflating the stressed 'you'.
[PS a poem can't really save your life (keep you sane, get you through - whatever) but you can.]

Not a very good selection. Too many by the same author. There are far better anthologies available.Published 14 months ago by T Davis
Daisy is my favourite anthologist. If you can find her 'Poems to last a Lifetime', get it, it's the best general anthology by a long way as well as a beautiful piece of publishing.Published 19 months ago by Sunslave
