(Photograph) - Roger McGough's selection for "The Kingfisher Book of Poems About Love" (Kingfisher pound;12.99) is packed with 133 poets. It is the Auden to Zephaniah of love poetry. McGough has cast widely among many nations and cultures for his selection, and has included the solemn, the sentimental, the silly and the sad - true poetry and nonsense side by side. Not just an entertaining and delightful book but an important one. Gillian Clarke (TES, February 14). See book offer, page 16
