Rubbing the Lamp
In Rubbing the Lamp we again find light verse that is not always as light as it first appears. Wry reflection about the ups and downs of life, love, lust and ageing is joined here by sagas of false teeth by moonlight, a schoolgirl heroine even more Brazil than Angela and of thong-wearing in suburbia.
We also find a prayer for unsuitable women, a lover's plea to share cornflakes, an extract from the Secret Diary of Old Nokomis and the pressing need for a boy to retrieve his mackintosh from beneath a sleeping girl.
