About the Author

Pam Ayres has been a writer, broadcaster, and entertainer for over 40 years, and is one of the few authors who has had books in the Sunday Times bestseller charts in almost every decade since the 1970s. She is the author of several best-selling poetry collections, including The Works, With These Hands, Surgically Enhanced and You Made Me Late Again!. Many of her poems are in school textbooks around the world including the UK, USA, China, Australia, New Zealand, Holland, South Africa, Ireland and Singapore. For BBC Radio, Pam has recorded six series of Ayres On the Air for BBC Radio 4, and she is a regular guest on Just A Minute.  Also for Radio 4, Pam is one of the comparatively few guests who have appeared twice on Desert Island Discs, the first time in 1979, and again in 2018.


“Pam Ayres is absolutely essential to British humour, reminding us all to be tickled by the small joys and ridiculousness of everyday life.”  MAIL ON SUNDAY
