Favourite Books

First read this when I was 20 and have re-read it twice - a rarity for me to read a book more than once.

A lot of books claim to be 'life-changing' but this one is - was.

Brilliant 'magic realism'. First read it thirty years ago and have just started it again.

Encouraging to learn that it was a while before this book became a success.

My most favourite book of poetry. Trouble is I keep lending it out and have to buy replacements. Currently on number six. I have a copy signed by Roger McGough - not for loan!
