Written daily throughout the UK’s restrictions to combat coronavirus, Pig’s Ear, Dog’s Dinner covers the period from the introduction of the ‘Three-Tier System’ through to the anniversary of the first lockdown. Filled with humour, acute observation and compassion, it forms a reflective documentation of the nation’s wellbeing.
“A book that future historians will want to read; it will tell them what it was like to live in turbulent times through a poet’s eye.” – Ian McMillan
“In these strange times, every day should have a Paul Cookson moment – keep him by your bedside for emergencies.” – Simon Mayo
“Pithy, moving, amusing and occasionally heartbreaking. A succinct, modern take on Daniel Defoe’s A Journal of the Plague Year. Brilliant.” – Paul Ross
