Safety in Numbers is a new collection from the nation’s favourite poet.

Traversing rocky terrain with the assurance of a poetry Rover on Mars, McGough brings down to earth the strangeness of a time on hold.

Staycations, adultery in lockdown, ghosts and gamblers, as well as playful advice to up and coming poets. (Don't do it!) With the gift of many tongues, playful, surreal and tender, McGough a trickster you can trust reveals the telling moments of our lives.
