Mark P Henderson’s Cruel and Unusual Punnishments is a riotous collection of poetry and prose. But it is so much more than an anthology of clever stories.
Do you want to be the person everyone remembers? Then commit one of these yarns to memory and make it your party piece at the next event you attend. Although if you choose one of Henderson’s fables ‘without morals’ you are advised to take his advice and position yourself within easy distance of the exit.
You might prefer one of his ‘tales to tell’ or one of his animal sonnets. And if one of your friends should ever suggest to you, as one of his friends once did to him, that no one could possibly make an aardvark the subject of a sonnet, then you will have a beautifully crafted rejoinder at your fingertips.
Each one of these unlikely tales is delightfully illustrated by the talented David Moss.
