The Works contains 120 of Pam Ayres' best-known poems from the 1970s and 1980s, including The Battery Hen; Please Will You Take Your Children Home Before I Do Them In?; Sling Another Chair Leg on the Fire, Mother; and, of course, Oh, I Wish I'd Looked After Me Teeth. For this new edition Pam has written a general introduction, as well as individual introductions to the poems, many of which are now illustrated with specially commissioned line drawings by Susan Hellard. This is the first time The Works has been available in hardback and is certain to delight Pam's fans of all ages. Pam is one of Britain's best-loved personalities and has been a regular on television and radio for more than 30 years—most recently on Just a Minute, The Comedy Quiz, Countdown, and her own series, Ayres on the Air.

About the Author:

Pam Ayres has been a regular on television and radio since winning the talent show Opportunity Knocks in 1975—on Just a Minute, The Comedy Quiz, Countdown, and her own series, Ayres on the Air. She performs her solo stage show around the world and was awarded the MBE in 2004.

Review:

"A proper poet, whose wistful, funny, and perceptive verse captures both the joy and unfairness of life."  —Sunday Times

"A poet for the people. Her verse portrays a wicked sense of humour, and deals with subjects not normally thought to be worthy of poetry."  —Melbourne Herald Sun

"Pam Ayres, the bestselling poet, writes as rhapsodically about the Wonderbra as Wordsworth did about daffodils."  —Guardian
