Award-winning Wendy Cope is a rare thing - a poet with a truly popular following (Radio 4's Poetry Please listeners voted her their No1 choice for Poet Laureate). Her often comical poetry shows a keen eye for the everyday aspects of English life, especially of intimate relationships. .
In Anecdotal Evidence, her first collection of new poetry since 2011's acclaimed Family Values, Wendy Cope celebrates ?the half-forgotten stories of our lives' with compassion, wisdom and wit. She continues to be the most generous of authors, sharing her experience of childhood and marriage, and writing poignantly about the passing of time.
