Book Reviews - The Family Pack by John Hegley

UK Kirkus Review » This collects The Brother-in-Law and Other Animals, Can I Come Down Now Dad? and They Were Your Father's. The army of Hegley fans will find this collection a great reflection of his live shows. You can't help hearing the author's voice in your head as you read. His pure vein of quirky comedy is mixed with a strain of submerged pathos. You'll find poems that go off like squibs (yesterday I went to see a play in my friend's car/it was by an experimental group/who do plays in people's cars) and others that harp on about Luton, for example, or - venomously - about a brother-in-law. The Family Pack is the perfect introduction to Hegley's wacky world. (Kirkus UK)
