About the author

A former holder of a Young Writer of the Year award, Charlie Mawer is now hoping to put in a reasonable challenge for the middle aged title. In between dreaming up synchronised swimming hippos, and rapping football commentators, he has been putting together a slim volume of poetry inspired by his most recent creative achievements - Kit and Jem. 

His two previous volumes, Down the Backs of Sofas, and Learning Gumboot, are now mercifully out

of print.

PREVIOUS REVIEWS

"Funny and engaging" - Brian Patten

Pick of the Fringe - Five Stars - Grahamstown Festival, South Africa.

" A gift for understatement, tough reasonableness clothed in slight lyric grace, plenty of self mockery, and best of all an approach in which casual friendliness and roguish diffidence are cuningly blent" - Herald, South Africa.

"Insightful and humorous, as is his showmanship" - Cue
