This is a mongrel mix of prose, poem, cartoon strip, letter, and limerick. Musings upon his mum, his chum, his love, his love's loss, and salvation at the paws of his chum's mum's Welsh Border Collie. This collection of verse and drawings from the man dubbed "comedy's poet laureate" combines Hegley's skills as a stand-up poet, puppeteer, and cartoonist. The work is, by turns, both touching and funny. ""
John Hegley's poems are featured regularly in the "Guardian." He has published numerous volumes of poetry, including "Glad to Wear Glasses," "My Dog is a Carrot," and "Peace, Love & Potatoes."
