Peter gets angry about the things that affect most of us. Trains, arthritis, ageing. But within the anger are moments of passion, of heartfelt sentiment, of joy and pain. The poems in this book are drawn from a finely tuned power of observation. Many of them are autobiographical revelations. He gets inside the minds of both men and women, gives us a front seat at a Spanish thunderstorm, attempts to understand the highs and lows of love and questions the impossibility of such an understanding.
