In Wendy’s latest work,  Life, Love and the Archers,  we meet an eclectic collection of her literary creations – from the Enid-Blyton-obsessed schoolgirl, the ambivalent daughter, the amused teacher, the sensitive journalist, the cynical romantic and the savagely funny television critic.

Her poetry collections, from the bestselling Making Cocoa for Kingsley Amis to the more recent Family Values combine poignancy, her characteristically dry humour and wry examinations of everyday life into poetry full of grace and insight. Wendy Cope proves that she’s a master of the one-liner as well as the couplet, the arch review as well as the sonnet.
