What’s It About

50 years ago, Penguin published its 1967 hit pop poetry book The Mersey Sound introducing Roger McGough, Brian Patten and Adrian Henri to the world, thereby securing Liverpool as the cultural centre of the UK and bringing poetry to pop audiences. With the help of famous friends and fellow writers, Roger McGough and Brian Patten tell the inside story of this modern classic and how they made poetry cool.
