It's pub dayThe time has finally come: today Two Roads publishes Life, Love and The Archers, the first ever collection of prose by beloved poet Wendy Cope.

Wendy Cope has long been one of the nation’s best-loved poets, with her sharp eye for human foibles and wry sense of humour. For the first time, Life, Love and the Archers brings together the best of her prose – recollections, reviews and essays from the light-hearted to the serious, taken from a lifetime of published and unpublished work, and all with Cope’s lightness of touch.

A book for anyone who’s ever fallen in love, tried to give up smoking, or consoled themselves that they’ll never be quite as old as Mick Jagger.

Publicity for the book has kicked off with an interview on Radio 4 Front Row (which you can find here, from 12:35, and a pick as Non-Fiction Book of the Month in Good Housekeeping, which called Wendy’s writing ‘always witty and insightful’.

Wendy has also recorded the audio edition of the book (we posted a picture from the recording session a little while ago: click here) and we have an exclusive extract here:


Over the past three days Wendy Cope has been hard at work in a lovely recording studio in Northern London reading her book Life, Love and the Archers for the audio book edition.

We have been working on this book, published on November 6th, for the past ten months and we thought we knew it inside-out. Turns out all we had to do was listen to Wendy for five minutes to fall in love with her book all over again…

Tell me a story…

Just before Christmas I participated in a telephone book club link up organised by the Royal National Institute for the Blind. A group of people with varying degrees of sight loss get together once a month to talk about books they have listened to.

A very nice bunch of people, lively and opinionated (like most book lovers) who very quickly got me looking at the world from their point of view. As one lady said to me ‘just because we’re

blind why should we have to wait to access recordings of new and noteworthy books. We want to be able to discuss them as soon as they come out, just like sighted people.’ And of course, good quality recordings of books are not routinely available and the cost of audio recording is quite significant, but there is an audience…and for some people they are the lifeline to books – when was the last time you listened to an audio book?

I thought for a while about writing up something where, by and large, the participants couldn’t easily access what I’ve written. However, this is a valuable resource for book lovers and it’s worth while publicising its good works. If you think you know someone who’d be interested in this service here are the details.

Oh, and don’t take your good sight for granted…

2011 Shortlist for Audible Audio Book of The Year.

My Dear I Have Something to Tell You won, but I’d recommend all of them and put in a nod for Wolf Hall, completely brilliant on audio.
