The patron saint of poetry’ Carol Ann Duffy

Take comfort from this
You have a book in your hand
Not a loaded gun or a parking fine
Or an invitation card to the wedding
Of the one you should have married

A new book of poems by Roger McGough is always an event and As Far As I Know is truly a cause for celebration. Hilarious and surreal, he is a poet of many voices. Menace and melancholy there may be, but with plenty of McGough's characteristic wit and wordplay too.

A dirty syringe or a deadly scorpion
A molotov cocktail or an overdose
Not a loaded gun or a parking fine
You have a book in your hand
Take comfort from this
