Format: Paperback
Your Men! They pepper pages
In a most peculiar way
The men you wrote a poem on
For lack of pepper spray

And yet I think you worth your salt
On the occasions it appears
Your non-man-hating poems dance
And waltz between the ears

Please quote this praise right back at them
If people dissapprove of you
That half a dozen good ones are
Six more than they could do

Don't say I said the others drag
I read them, every one
You may however say I found
Not all so good as some

I have not read poetry since my children were young but found this book full of dry humour. The poems either made me smile or laugh out loud. I have enjoyed her fiction but surprised myself by enjoying her poetry more. If you want a smile give this a try!

Sophie's verse rhymes and scans, which I love, and she manages to fit colloquial English into the discipline of her format without apparent effort. I particularly liked 'Don't say I said' and 'Rubbish at Adultery', which are genuinely funny as well as true to life.

Format: Paperback
Read somewhere that these poems are now studied for GCSE/A-level which would suggest that the examining boards have fallen for the hype on the back cover. There's a couple of quirky lines that might raise a smile, but on the whole this work seems very mediocre ... and at its worst is verging on Pam Ayres. They are very samey; generally about some man who has let the author down ... if she was a friend, you'd be tempted to say Get Over It. Poetry of the Woman's Magazine School of literature. 'The brightest young star in British poetry?' Let's hope not!
