The Land Before Yoghurt
Published by Red Squirrel Press
The Land Before Yoghurt is a collection of new poems by the New Writing North award winning poet Alistair Robinson.
It includes pieces from By Grand Central Station We Sat Down And Wept (Red Squirrel, 2010) and from the forthcoming Double Bill (Red Squirrel, 2013). His trademark humour permeates the collection, which brings together poems that have proved popular at his readings. The folklore of knees, budgerigars and tables are among the subjects tackled.
