About the Author
More at home in a bar than a library, Mark takes his poems to the masses with his live shows. Sometimes he is thrown off stage, sometimes people fight over his poems; some of his poems have punchlines, sometimes no punches are pulled. Once a regular performer at The Torriano, the legendary London venue known for performances by Pete Doherty, Noel Fielding, Scott McMahon and Lianne La Havas, he cut his teeth with the wildest.
Mark is also known for the street signs that keep popping up across London s Kentish Town. A passer-by named Cuthbert, with an impressive intergalactic afro hair-do, said to him one morning, 'you've made my day' whilst staring up at a sign that read 'on the cusp of greatness'. He hopes his first collection, of the same name, will do the same for you.

I notice this is a first book and suspect Mark Waddell will cross the cusp into recognised greatness, A clever man and a great book.
Truely original and a laugh at the first reading, but return to this gem to retain your sanity.
