When Christopher Matthew was six, the poems of A.A. Milne were always on hand to reassure him that other children were just as puzzled and naughty and foolish as he was ‹ and that grown-ups could be even sillier. Now that he is sixty, he has decided it¹s high time there was an equally reassuring volume for those of his generation who are not only more confused than ever, but are losing their teeth, their hair and, all too often, their car keys. What he has done is take some of Milne¹s best-loved poems and rewritten them for sixty-year-olds, with results that are often hilarious, sometimes rueful, and always thought-provoking. The poems not only follow the familiar rhythms and rhyme schemes of the master, but reinvent that curious mixture of comedy and wistfulness, sharp observation and daft whimsy that has delighted children and adults for over seventy years.About the Author:
Christopher Matthew is the author of a dozen books including Diary of a Somebody and has contributed to the Daily Telegraph, the Observer, and Vogue.
