Exuberant new collection joinedupwriting ranges from forgotten friendships and the idiosyncrasies of family life to the trauma of war and contemporary global politics. These poems explore the human experience in all its shades of light and dark but always with McGough's signature wit, irreverence and vivacity.
This is the nation's favourite poet at his finest.

Special Guest - LUKE AG
Joining Roger will be Luke AG, an award-winning poet with a distinctly political message. He uses poetry and rhyme to navigate identity, society, and the narrative of his own life.
Originally from Hastings, many of his poems explore his journey from a small town to a big city, with a couple of pit stops and observations along the way.
