The Independent: “rather brilliant and funny…reminded me of McGough”

Incredibly flattered to be mentioned in The Independent in an article by Andy Martin about one of my favourite poets Roger McGough:
Louise Kevan wrote a rather brilliant and funny poem that reminded me of McGough, all about how the Old Woman came to be living in that Shoe with all those kids in the first place (“There was a young man who lived in a boot…”). She is the mother of two young daughters and had become concerned about the risks of over-population. “Writing stopped me from going completely round the bend,” she said. Poetry is a form of madness, but it saves you from having to actually go mad.
