Point of Sale

by Peter Sansom

Point of Sale is an entertaining and accessible collection by a poet who writes with warmth and wry humour about family life, chip shops, department stores and the mundane details of the everyday. An excellent choice for any reader who's a bit nervous of contemporary poetry but wants to find out more.


The baby is at an easy age to say Oh fuck
The middle one sleeps off E with her boyfriend
and has her prints taken shoplifting.
The eldest has his arse in the sofa
and trails a guitar lead even to the loo;
Oasis makes him sneer at exams.
