2017 marks more McGough milestones than the average year. There’s the 50th anniversary of the iconic & topselling Penguin Modern Poets No.10 – The Mersey Sound by Roger McGough, Brian Patten and the much missed Adrian Henri.

Then the summer of ’67 epic poem of love & lust, Summer With Monika, being republished with illustrations by Chris Riddell.

Roger also has a significant birthday in November when his New and Selected Poems is published by Penguin. Today, the beat goes on, with a selection of vintage, tough & surprising poems.
