Emergency Rations for the Seriously Stressed.
Is your way of life doing serious damage to your metal health? Are you spending more time in meetings and traffic jams than you are in bed? Are you spending more on scented candles than on food?
Here is a collection of poems that deal with all sorts of modern madness, under headings such as 'Press The Star Button Now' for the technologically enraged, or 'Other People's Weddings' for the reluctant singleton, to 'Acting Your Age' for the evergreen clubber, to 'Flat Pack Frenzy' for anyone who has shopped at Ikea.
The anthology covers a whole range of threats to your sanity from minor irritations such as trains that don't arrive and dinner party dramas to major life events such as a broken heart or the death of a parent. With poetic offerings from writers as diverse as Ovid and Wendy Cope, this book is for anyone who wants to put their life back into perspective.
