Product description

Review

...witty, realistic and imaginative. Auden, Hayden and Uccello live in his pages as happily as snooker stars, Tesco and Extra Strong Mints Peter Porter, Observer ...a mature assurance which results in poems that are always entertaining and frequently something more --Carol Ann Duffy, Guardian

...brilliant at evoking the tender details of a working-class childhood in the 1960s - 'after the war and before give peace a chance' --Andy Croft, Morning Star
