Nothing for Anyone, Peter Reading, 1977
Publisher: Secker & Warburg
The epigram for Nothing for Anyone says:
Mercifully, we’re only
molested by the Big Issue
in the watches of the night;
in daylight hours we busy
ourselves with the Trivial.
A mixture of poems and prose works full of social satire, “Reading’s book is an oasis of intellect and wit. Experimenting with styles and word games, he achieves some very entertaining and interesting effects. A bitter wit marks all these poems.”
