CRASH! BANG! WALLOP!

Poems in Inverted Commas

by

This is a guy (Laurie) who may dream of being like his hero (Bob Dylan) but so far life continues to give him the big thumbs-down...a c'est la-vie book.

My book "Waxing Wroth" won the Emissary Pulishing 1999 Peter Pook Humorous Novel prize.

Laurie McTaggart links word to word and page to page in an outstanding literary collection of verses. She paints images and offers delightful combinations of nouns and verbs.

I came to this book with no pre-conceptions which was just as well as, had I known that it had a religious bent, I would probably not have been so keen to read it. Thank goodness that was the case.

McTaggart's writing is superb, weaving the message into a story which holds together, styled as a modern piece of poetry. Whether you want the Christian message or not, this is incredibly readable and makes you think about life, living and dying with a huge dose of humour. The imagery created from the start allows you to picture the "narrator" and then that is built on throughout. Never losing its style I commend this book to anyone who enjoys thinking a little about what they are reading.

I loved this one pretty much. Once I opened up the very first page, I thought that it would be my kind of book to read, and yes. it was.

Born in Newcastle upon Tyne during the hard winter of 1947, I went to school there, getting a slew of qualifications. I did two years of a science course before realizing what I really wanted to do was write, and so I ‘dropped out’. Have been writing on and off ever since, and have had two books published; as well as winning second place in the 1989 BBC/Radio Times Comedy Awards.
