About this product
- DescriptionAbout Alan Brownjohn's last individual volume of poems, Ludbrooke and Others (2010), Sean O'Brien wrote in the Sunday Times, 'If you don't find yourself laughing at and with Ludbrooke, the chances are that you're a Puritan or dead or both.' Brownjohn's new book, intriguingly titled A Bottle, is one of his most varied and resourceful to date, featuring t only characteristically funny and entertaining poems and mysterious, gripping narratives (the title poem) but also moving tributes and elegies, love poems, and some absorbing social observation. It will confirm his reputation as 'one of the most reliably enjoyable of writers.'
- Author BiographyAlan Brownjohn is well known as poet, novelist and critic; he received a Lifetime Achievement Award from the Writers' Guild of Great Britain in 2007. Born in 1931, he was educated at Merton College, Oxford and worked as a teacher and lecturer for twenty-five years. He has been a freelance writer and broadcaster since 1978, publishing four novels (including the prizewinning The Way You Tell Them in 1990, and Windows on the Moon in 2009), and has reviewed poetry for the New Statesman, Encounter and The Sunday Times. Eleven individual volumes of verse were represented in his Collected Poems (Enitharmon Press, 2006), and a twelfth, Ludbrooke and Others, followed in 2010. The Saner Places (2011) contains his personal choice of poems from all of these books.
