This is a singularly original book, in that it is both fiction (the first part is poetry) and non fiction (the latter, prose).
A tale is told in couplet form about the Poet-in-Residence to the Royal Court who misbehaves and connives
to avoid facing the music,. so to speak, Intrigue. This piece segues into a pair of poems about an Anglophile (in this
case, lovers of London and Dublin, respectively).. The book ends nicely with a true story about the writer's father and his childhood "Royal Club" and what became of its members many years later. This is a humorous and yet poignant book.
It is an 'easy read' and a MUST for those seeking a fresh, new, intelligent and charming work.
