Hilarious and surreal, Roger McGough is a poet of many voices. Menace and melancholy there may be, but with plenty of McGough's characteristic wit and wordplay too. Newly elected President of the Poetry Society, Roger McGough has been honoured with a CBE for services to literature and the Freedom of the City of Liverpool for good behaviour. Lily The Pink, the Aintree Iron, Scaffold, GRIMMS, The Mersey Sound with Adrian Henri and Brian Patten, and presenter of BBC R4's long-running Poetry Please. The beat goes on.
