The Way the Crocodile Taught Me is a heartfelt and tragi-comic portrayal of a fraught childhood and adolescence. Central to the book are two sequences: one about an awful stepfather, and the other about a kindly but also comically old-fashioned grandmother. Interspersed with the awful there are moments of humour, of contemplation, redemption, realisation. These are pointed, lively and always entertaining poems.
