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
