The new collection from Britain's best-loved poet and entertainer, Pam Ayres
It's over 30 years since Pam first appeared on the TV talent show 'Opportunity Knocks', and since then her comic poems have contributed enormously to the wider appeal today of all forms of poetry. Many of Pam's poems feature in anthologies used in schools around the world. She's been a regular on TV and Radio over the years -- on BBC Radio 2 with her own series, The Comedy Quiz, Pam Ayres' Sunday Afternoon and Pam Ayres' Open Road, and on Radio 4 in Just A Minute, That Reminds Me, The Right Time, Wireless Wise, and her own recent Radio 4 series Ayres On The Air. She was awarded the MBE in the Queen's Birthday Honours of 2004.
'There are clear comparisons between Pam and Sir John Betjeman' -- Daily Express 'Observant, mocking, gently thought-provoking. SURGICALLY ENHANCED ... is one of her best' -- Daily Telegraph
