From the publisher

The Orange provides the perfect introduction to Wendy Cope, one of Britain’s wittiest, best-selling and best-loved poets.

My heart has made its mind up
And I’m afraid it’s you.

A glorious selection of Wendy Cope’s most beloved poems.

In poems that can turn from laugh-out-loud funny to deeply moving, Wendy Cope offers reflections on love and life. From the joy of falling – and being – in love to ways to help you deal with a painful break-up or the memories of people loved and lost, this is a book you will want to savour and share with all your friends.

‘Wendy Cope’s readership, numerous and adoring, is the envy of most poets. Cope’s real strength lies not in charm or insight (she has buckets of both) but in the pitch perfect exactitude of her writing.’ Sunday Times
