What is life without love, and what are these without the delight of laughter? Nandana Bose's gallimaufry of verse follows in the great tradition of limericks - poking poetic fun at our foibles and eccentricities, making us laugh. Malapropisms, sexual show-offs, bearded weirdies, druggies and drinkers, snail-lovers and provocative ladies all come under the poet's 'cosh'. But it's all very light-hearted, and the random targets and idiosyncrasies fit well with the nature of the genre as pioneered by Edward Lear. Laugh and enjoy Ms. Bose's collection, and if you catch sight of yourself in the mirror while doing so, like the author, then you'll have another source of mirth! Nandana Bose is twenty-seven years old and was born in Calcutta. She started writing limericks as an undergraduate at Presidency College in Calcutta. A British Chevening scholar from India in 2001, she holds masters degrees in Film Studies from Jadavpur University, Calcutta, and Communications Studies from the University of Leeds, England. She is interested in English literature and theatre, cinema, politics, Western classical music, cricket and travelling.
