AN EXUBERANT NEW COLLECTION FROM ONE OF BRITAIN'S BEST LOVED POETS

For more than fifty years, Roger McGough has entranced generations of readers with poetry which is at once playful and poignant, intimate and ambitious in its scope.

Joinedupwriting delivers on all the wry observation, warmth and subtle heartache that readers have come to expect from his collections.

From forgotten friendships to the idiosyncrasies of family life, to the trauma of war right through to contemporary global politics - these poems explore the human experience in all its shades of light and dark, but always with McGough's signature wit, irreverence and vivacity.

This is the nation's favourite poet at his very finest.

'McGough has done for poetry what champagne does for weddings' Time Out

'The patron saint of poetry' Carol Ann Duffy


AUTHOR: Roger McGough was a member of the group Scaffold in the 1960s when he contributed poems to the Penguin title The Mersey Sound, which has since sold over a million copies and is now available as a Penguin Classic. He has published many books of poems for children and adults, and both his Collected Poems (2004) and Selected Poems (2006) are also available in Penguin. He presents Poetry Please on Radio 4 and is President of the Poetry Society. He was honoured with the Freedom of the City of Liverpool in 2001 and with a CBE in 2005 for services to literature.
