Summary

Pam Ayres, one of Britain's best-loved entertainers, personally presents this audiobook which brings together two of her solo stage shows with live audiences. Pam introduces each recording and then, as a bonus, reads a collection of new and previously unrecorded poems from her two most recent books, You Made Me Late Again and Up In The Attic.

With poems such as 'My Mother Was Right About You', 'Geriatric Juliet', 'Poor Old Father Christmas', and 'The Hat From Hell', blending Pam’s characteristically sharp wit with her warm, comic observations on everyday life, this hilariously funny collection is a must-have for seasoned fans and first time listeners alike. It also includes some of Pam's more reflective poems including the title poem, 'Down the Line', which she wrote for the 100th Anniversary of the end of the First World War.

"I keep smiling, remembering moments performed by the incredible Pam Ayres at the Curve Theatre Leicester last night. Laughed and cried in equal measure. What a woman." (BBC Radio, September 2018)
