Product description

Review

It is delightful to see Poems in the Porch in print again - they contain some of Betjeman's funniest writing and best-aimed satire. Here, too are some poems that have never seen the light of day - real gems.
-Betjemen Society

In this slim volume you are once again in a world where Sunday was a day of rest and the Church of England was the centre of the community. These 22 poems are truly little gems and if you haven't met Betjeman before, this is a good introduction.
-East Riding News, February 2010

...in this slim volume...you are re-entering a world where Sundays were actually days of rest, and the dear old C of E was firmly planted at the heart of the community.
-Church Times, 28 November 2008

I congratulate Professor Gardner and his publishers for their enterprise in bringing out this scholarly and entertaining little book
-4th October 2008 - Daily Telegraph, The

...a fascinating book and a must for fans of Betjeman. --25 December 2008 - Methodist Recorder
