With over 50 new poems from Britain’s favorite 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 are brand new, yet it also features several firm favorites from her stage shows, published for the first time, such as "The Make-up Lady" and "Tippy Tappy Feet."

Pam Ayres is a British entertainer and comedian who has appeared as a guest on Just A Minute, Loose Ends, and Saturday Live. She is the author of several poetry collections, including Surgically Enhanced, With These Hands, and The Works, and a memoir, The Necessary Aptitude.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
