Waterstones Says

Featuring all different flavours of affection from familial to romantic, and from literary passions to online love, Bilston’s delightful collection of poems is filled to the brim with wit and humour.

Alexa, what is there to know about love? is a wonderful collection of poems about love in all its forms, covering everything from romantic love to familial love, to long-distance love, and even love on the internet.

The collection also features poems about the true passions for many booklovers, reading and literature, and the odd one about the subject causing many of us heartbreak: politics. With titles like 'Hold My Hand While We Jump Off This Cliff' and 'Remembrance of Things Pasta', there's something for even the most jaded romantic within these pages.

The perfect, witty gift for Valentine's and beyond.

In all honesty, I cannot remember the last time I read poetry. I was instantly drawn to the title of this book thought and OH WOW I am so glad that I was. It is an absolute gem. So much humour and I really enjoyed the... More

“All opinions are his own, and not from Alexa !”

Brian Bilston is one of my fave poets, along with Wendy Cope. His style is wide-ranging from the humorous to the deeply prophetic. His modern take on our society (and thoughts about life in prehistoric times) and... More
