Description

The brand new collection of verse from the nation's favourite poet, Pam Ayres.

With the same magic that has enchanted her fans for more than four decades, Pam's new collection is by turns side-splittingly funny, at others so reflective and profound that it moves whole audiences to tears.

From the horror of playing host in `The Dinner Party' and complaints about pub tableware in `Don't Put My Dinner on the Slate!', to a poignant reflection of war in 'Down the Line' or the nostalgic `Up in the Attic', in which Pam is deluged by memories when on the search for an old document, this new collection will tickle and move readers in equal measure.
