Summary

Whimsical Words and Dramatic Affairs; A Book of Badly Written Poetry is a small collection of rhymes and creatively-penned thoughts by author (and comic artist) Katrina Joyner. These poems span from the horribly cheesy writings of a 16 year old teenager to the deeply-wounded wails of an abandoned single mother.

    Born to Love, Cursed to Feel is about love—the good, the bad, and the confusing. It touches on morals and how when emotions are involved it’s not as black and white. The poetry is frequently written in a narrative manner that evocatively pulls you in and makes you feel. This book is about falling in love, bad decisions, and ultimately growth. The essence of it all is to show that no matter how far one falls all the mistakes don’t have to be what defines them.

    Nina Raine's Tiger Country is a hospital play that follows a tangle of doctors and nurses in a busy London hospital - from the award-winning author of Tribes.  
    Professionalism and prejudice, turbulent staff romances, ambition and failure collide in this swirling, action-packed drama about an overburdened health service that we all depend on and the dedicated individuals that keep it going.  
    'Tiger country' is where animal instinct stirs and an irrefutable eye opens. Where we make eye contact with the unknown.  
    Tiger Country was premiered at Hampstead Theatre in 2011 and, following its sell-out run, was revived there in 2014.

With all her previous Prime Ministers the Queen enjoyed a fairly informal relationship, but with Mrs Thatcher, things were different. Handbagged speculates on the relationship between these two very powerful and private women.
