''IS IT ANY WONDER THAT SO MANY OF US LOVE HER?''Francis Wheen,Mail on Sunday
Wendy Cope has long been one of the nation''s best-loved poets, with her sharp eye for human foibles and wry sense of humour. For the first time,Life, Love and the Archersbrings together the best of her prose - recollections, reviews and essays from the light-hearted to the serious, taken from a lifetime of published and unpublished work, and all with Cope''s lightness of touch.
Here readers can meet the Enid-Blyton-obsessed schoolgirl, the ambivalent daughter, the amused teacher, the sensitive journalist, the cynical romantic and the sardonic television critic, as well as touching on books and writers who have informed a lifetime of reading and writing.
Wendy Cope is a master of the one-liner as well as the couplet, the telling review as well as the sonnet, andLife, Love and the Archersgives us a wonderfully entertaining and unforgettable portrait of one of England''s favourite writers.
A book for anyone who''s ever fallen in love, tried to give up smoking, or consoled themselves that they''ll never bequiteas old as Mick Jagger.

Wendy Cope read history at Oxford and then worked for 15 years as a London primary school teacher. Her first book of poems,Making Cocoa for Kingsley Amis, was published in 1986. Since then she has been a freelance writer. Her most recent book of poems isFamily Values, published in 2011. She lives in Ely.
