Finding a Leg to Stand On : New & Selected Poems 1980-2012 by Connie Bensley



Connie Bensley’s poems are sharply satirical, often poking fun at social pretence and suburban pretension. They present a comedy of manners in which mismatched characters are bounced between love, death and disappointment. Hers is a seemingly small world but one which spans a whole universe of everyday life.

Finding a Leg to Stand On is a retrospective selection of her delightfully pointed poems drawn from six collections published over three decades, plus new work.

Includes ‘Vauxhall’
