Pam Ayres 'Up in the Attic'
PAM AYRES - Up In The Attic - Wantage Literary Festival

Up in the Attic is the brand-new collection of verse from the nation’s favourite poet, Pam Ayres. With the same magic that has enchanted her fans for more than four decades, Pam’s new collection is by turns side-splittingly funny, at others so reflective and profound that audiences are moved to tears.

From the horror of playing host in ‘The Dinner Party’ and complaints about pub tableware in ‘Don’t Put My Dinner on the Slate!’, to the poignant ‘Up in the Attic’, in which Pam is deluged by memories when on the search for an old document, and the sadness of wartime ‘Down The Line’, this new collection will tickle and move readers in equal measure.

Pam Ayres has been a writer, broadcaster, and entertainer for over 40 years. She is the author of several best-selling poetry books, including The Works, Surgically Enhanced, You Made Me Late Again!, and The Last Hedgehog.
