Ludbrooke: An Introduction
by Alan Brownjohn
Alan Brownjohn introduces Ludbrooke, his eponymous anti-hero. “I’ve found somebody fictitious to represent the disagreeable elements in my own character”, Alan explains. “He’s devious and up to all sorts of furtive ruses. In fact Ludbrooke has more than a little seedy panache!”
“The Ludbrooke poems are among Alan’s very best,” said Dennis O’Driscoll, “a brilliantly wry creation, lovably roguish, yet deeply vulnerable too.”

TO A VERY SPECIAL SLOPE
You’re such a radiant gradient
A smooth one, not a hilly one
Your red-rimmed sign says you’re one in nine
But to me you’re one in a million
