‘Pam Ayres is absolutely essential to British humour’ Mail on Sunday
‘A national treasure’ Daily Express
Delighting her fans for more than four decades with her mischievous wit and wry observations, this is a classic collection of poems and monologues from Pam Ayres, which takes us back to where it all began. From the nostalgia of her 1950’s childhood, conjuring up images of hand-knitted swimming costumes and suet puddings, through Pam’s four years in the WRAF where she discovered the joy of performing, to poignant reflections on motherhood and watching her children grow up. With These Hands provides a profound and hilarious insight into the joys and tribulations of daily life, as recorded by the nation’s favourite poet.
