Description

Hot on the heels of The Alternative Poetry Books - Yellow edition comes The Alternative Poetry Books - Pink edition.  The Kindle ebook was simultaneously in the Amazon best selling top ten in the UK and US in Dec 2011 and gained international acclaim.

While the Yellow edition was a sunny cornucopia of food, France, family and the frivolous the Pink edition firmly celebrates the feminine side of human nature.

Fictional folk such as the not-so cross cross-dresser; a middle-aged mother with a secret life as a European Soccer Cup goalkeeper, and a Fairy Godmother who decides it's her turn for some 'me' time, rub shoulders in this edition with real-life amazing people.

People like Claire Robertson the Dorchester entrepreneur, Lionheart and Lights Out - Swansea cage fighters in dresses who stood up to a thug and won the hearts of a nation, and the remarkable Elena Desserich only 5 years old from Wyoming who made a lasting impression on so many people in her tragically short life.

The world is full of beauty, love and fun that shines through despite sadness and this is the triumph of humanity I hope that the Pink edition will celebrate.

This is a short excerpt - the full book contains 59 poems and 83 pages.
