Family Values by Wendy Cope

The short volume deals with everyday life. The verse may be light but the subjects can be weighty and despite the surface simplicity, technically they are skilled - sonnets, triolets, pantoums and vilanelles.

From mother/daughter relationships, boarding school experiences, that first date, old boy's day, the health scare, the widow and of course, The Archers and Closedown, (with a nod the the shipping forecast)'s all there. But read it slowly and thoughtfully!
