9780007127962: 101 Poems to Keep You Sane: Emergency Rations for the Seriously Stressed

A self-help poetry anthology to smooth out the stresses and woes of adult life…

Is your way of life doing serious damage to your mental health? Are you spending more time in meetings and traffic jams than you are in bed? Does everyone around you appear to be richer, happier and have thinner thighs? Have you started reading the lonely-hearts column for more than a good laugh? Are you spending more on scented candles than on food?

If any of the above sounds familiar then you need ‘101 Poems To Keep You Sane’, a collection of poems to help you weather a whole range of threats to your sanity, from things that merely ruffle the calm surface of life – under headings such as ‘Domestic Goddess of Anxiety’ and ‘Flatpack Frenzy’ (for anyone who has shopped at Ikea) – to the storms and hurricanes of heartbreak and despair in the ‘Getting Over It’ and ‘Emotional Rescue’ sections.

With poetic offerings from writers as diverse as John Dryden to Maya Angelou, this book is essential for anyone who wants to put their life back in perspective.
