Roger McGough is the author of over a hundred books of poetry for adults and children. Exuberant new collection joinedupwriting ranges from forgotten friendships and the idiosyncrasies of family life to the trauma of war and contemporary global politics. These poems explore the human experience in all its shades of light and dark but always with McGough’s signature wit, irreverence and vivacity. This is the nation’s favourite poet at his finest.

Formed in 2009 LiTTLe MACHiNe are the ‘must have’ act at Literary Festivals from York to Dubai. Drawing on three thousand years of poetry  –  Sappho, Chaucer, Shakespeare, Blake, Byron, Eliot, Larkin and many more  –  they set classic poems to music and perform them with energy, passion and humour. Music that moves the feet for words that move the soul!

‘It’s a long time since I heard something so exciting, a wonderful way of delivering poetry. The most brilliant music and poetry band in the world’. Carol Ann Duffy

‘LiTTLe MACHiNe’s sophisticated way with poetry made me fall in love with old and new favourites all over again. They make you laugh and break your heart.’ Gillian Clarke
