9780091940478: You Made Me Late Again!: My New Collection

With over fifty new poems from Britain’s favourite poet, You Made Me Late Again! is an essential addition to Pam Ayres’ incomparable collection of works.

Pam’s poems are observant, witty and poignant in equal measure. In ‘The Swifts’ and ‘The Pyracantha Anthem’ she marvels at nature, while ‘A Patient’s Prayer’ and ‘Litter Moron’ offer wry views on Modern Britain. From the dog being afraid of the toaster to your son leaving home for university; and from the search for that perfect swimsuit to becoming a gran for the first time – Pam’s poems are beautifully crafted, and her subjects the everyday and the universal.

Delightfully illustrated, most of the poems in You Made Me Late Again! are brand new, yet it also features several firm favourites from her stage shows, published for the first time, such as ‘The Make-up Lady’ and ‘Tippy Tappy Feet’.

Review:

"

When I say that Pam Ayres ought to be the Oxford Professor of Poetry, even the Poet Laureate, I am not being facetious ... Ayres uses simple verse forms - comic ballads or folk song idioms - to make poignant observations about tiresome husbands, gossiping wives, false teeth or battery hens.

I find her work sweet and sour, gentle and sad, and often very moving in its wistful way

" (Roger Lewis Daily Mail)

"Her wistful, funny and perceptive verse captures both the joy and unfairness of life" ( Sunday Times)

"A wonderful, wonderful book" (Paul O’Grady)

"Her humour, which verges on the black at times, is contagious and so original" ( Daily Telegraph)

"A national treasure. There are clear comparisons between Pam and Sir John Betjeman" ( Daily Express)

Book Description:

The wonderful new collection of poems, anecdotes and short verses from the inimitable Pam Ayres.
