COLLECTION by John Updike
Jacketed Hard Cover ISBN 978-0575012356 [£5]
This is one of the most sparkling collections of light verse for many a long day, and it may well come to rank among the classics of the genre. John Updike is an original: his humour is fresh and spontaneous, and the most improbable subjects can tickle his fancy. Who else would be fired unto poetry by a box of throat pastilles, or a hairbrush, or a publisher's colophon, or a nutcracker, or a cup f coca?
