Summary

Warm and witty, direct and droll, the sharply funny Pam Ayres has been amusing and entertaining her many fans for years. Her humorous observations of daily life touch a chord with anybody who's ever been bewildered by the exercise craze or has yearned after the vanished Spotted Dick. In this collection, Pam reads over 50 of her best-known and loved poems, including such favourites as "Oh I Wish I'd Looked After Me Teeth", "I'm a Starling...me Darling", "Will I have to be Sexy at Sixty?", and "St. Tesco". Many of the poems include a personal introduction by Pam.

Excellent, witty and funny.

Loved it. Pam brings to life her imaginative and funny poetry and gives insight about her inspiration. A definite must.

Numerous times I had to stop walking and laugh out loud or ponder a well honed, and spoken, thought from these contemporary poems.
