Jeremy Lawrence's new book of satirical verses, Further Foibles: A Savoury Dish of Satirical Verses, is to be launched at the Irma Stern Museum on Saturday, 8 December. The illustrations are by Carol Mangiagalli.

In a forward Sir Malcolm Jack writes:

Foibles, or satirical verse exposing the failings and moral weaknesses of mankind, are not written for the faint-hearten or those of ultra-politically correct temperaments.

Be that as it may, the author insists that he composed this collection of humorous poems-which take their cue from the 'ruthless rhymes' of Hilaire Belloc and Harry Graham written a hundred years ago-with no other intention than to amuse.
