Ken Smith Books, Ken Smith poetry book Tom Shields Takes the Fifth Authors: Tom Shields, Ken Smith
Publisher: Mainstream Publishing
Published Date: 2002
Categories: Humor
""Just when you thought it was safe to go into a bookshop, here is yet another book from that man at the Herald Diary. It is the usual scintillating mixture of anecdote, pith (no, there is no lithp involved) and fable. There will also be some funny photies. This is the fifth book in the Tom Shields trilogy. Yes, his counting is as awful as his writing. This time, however, Shields does not bare the blame alone. This tome is culled from the Diary columns that Shields and Ken Smith wrote together five days a week at The Herald. This was before Pepys the Elder left to embark on a glittering career as a freelance writer, leaving the column in the capable hands of the talented-ish, young-ish, handsome Mr Smith. Tom Shields' writing is featured in four other Mainstream books- Tom Shields' Diary, Tom Shields Too, Tom Shields Free at Last and Tom Shields Goes Forth.""

Categories: Humor
What are folk desperate for these days? A laugh, we reckon. And fortunately the readers of The Herald newspaper agree, as over the past year they have sent the newspaper's Diary column their funniest moments, whether it's about the daft things that happen in their office, the outrageous comments they are told in the pub, or just the eyebrow-raising observations they overhear on the train into town. They even have the occasional smile over politics, would you believe. And the very best of them are gathered in this handy volume. So if you want to know why Scotsmen still cannot understand their partners, the funniest claims made on the golf course, and the outrageous shenanigans of police officers, apprentices, shop-workers and school teachers, then look no further.

Poem of the day

Robert Service Poem
The Sunshine Seeks My Little Room
 by Robert Service

The sunshine seeks my little room
To tell me Paris streets are gay;
That children cry the lily bloom
All up and down the leafy way;
That half the town is mad with May,
With flame of flag and boom of bell:
For Carnival is King to-day;
So pen and page, awhile farewell.
