The many thousands of readers who brought Charlotte Mitchell's last volume of poems, 'I want to Go home', will leap on this new collection, drawn both from the author's two immensely popular BBC Radio 4 programmes, 'Looking Round Dangerously' and 'I Want to Go Home', and from her new programme, 'Just in Case'. This book includes many longer poems, such as; 'The Portfolio', 'The Lonely Widows' Club' and the poem from which the book's title was taken, 'Just in Case'. It contains all the poems from the new radio programme and, like its predecessor, is a witty and very perceptive commentary on the foibles of humanity. The charm of Charlotte Mitchell is that she is not afraid to express the thoughts that many of us think but dare not utter. Without malice or spite she exposes pomposity and insincerity, deplores materialism and laughs at bureaucracy. She laughs at herself, too - at her untidiness, her procrastination, her inability to make up her mind. Ranging from the serious to the trivial, her poems strike a chord in us all. We recognise in ourselves the weakness, the aspirations and the regrets that Charlotte Mitchell describes so vividly, and we feel with her the sense of outrage at injustice and deceit. 'I Want to Go Home' was in such demand that it reprinted within a few weeks of publication. "Just in Case" will undoubtedly prove no less popular.
