The best book since 'Pick-Up Lines for Pensioners' Miss Betty Jones You just have to buy this book! Miss Galena Sublime You have no idea what it's like sitting on a shelf in the poetry section of a bookshop. Have you ever noticed how literature designated as being intellectual is always hidden like some top shelf publication in a sweet shop? I get so lonely down there in all that prehistoric dust. Truth be known, I get picked up less than Betty Jones at number 47 and shes 92! As you might have gathered, I'm a little different, well some might even say special! I'm not so much a poetry book, more a biography of everyday living. Within my pages you will find the musings and poetry of an 'ordinary' bloke from down your street. This is the life and times of Joe average, a testament to life as you know it and a vote for the real world. You could say I'm a snapshot of real life written by a real person. If you buy me I promise to sit on your coffee table and pretend to be intellectual, just think how much more sophisticated you will look!
Andrew Barber was born in 1969 in Wisbech, Cambridgeshire. He was educated at Glebe House in Norfolk and the Wisbech Grammar School. He didn’t write his first poem, “Britannia Rise”, until 2011, but his first collection, Me, My World, and I was published the following year. He works as a system architect and spends a lot of time travelling. He considers himself to be a normal bloke from down the street. And he is enthusiastic about writing poetry that is easy to read and easy to relate to.
