9780141042022: That Awkward Age

From laundrettes to contact lenses, Paul McCartney's trousers to plane crashes, McGough guides us through the pitfalls and idiosyncrasies of our illogical and unexciting lives, and finds the humour and drama hidden within. This new collection has a bonus section: in a series of wonderfully funny poems, responding to Carol Ann Duffy's The World's Wife McGough gives voice to a number of forgotten and longsuffering male figures: Lord Godiva, Mr Sappho, Mr Blyton, etc

Presenter of Radio 4's Poetry Please and Britain's foremost popular poet, McGough brings us this happy collision of life, language and imagination with his unique and witty wordplay. His recent adaptation of The Hypochondriac playing at the Liverpool Playhouse has had fantastic reviews where, as with all his writing, McGough "produces that rare sound, an audience rocking to rhyme" (Susannah Clapp, Observer)

About the Author:

Roger McGough is one of Britain's best-known poetry voices. Following the success of the bestselling Penguin collection The Mersey Sound (with Brian Patten and the late Adrian Henri) he has been captivating children and adults alike with his unique blend of heart and wit for more than four decades. He is the regular presenter of Radio 4's Poetry Please programme. Much travelled and translated he is now an international ambassador for poetry and was honoured with the Freedom of the City of Liverpool in 2001, and with a CBE in 2005. In the last couple of years he has successfully adapted two Molière plays, Tartuffe and The Hypochondriac, for the Liverpool Everyman Theatre.
