Observer Interview Scottish Herald Extract
Ranjit Bolt was born in Manchester and studied at the University of Oxford. He worked in London for eight years as a stockbroker, writing and translating plays verse at night (his father is the poet and don Sydney Bolt, his uncle the poet and screenwriter Robert Bolt). When Jonathan Miller staged one of his plays, it became a surprise success and he a fulltime playwright. He now lives and writes in Cambridge and London.
'The rhythms and particular delights of the limerick form are so well exploited here. Perfect poems.' STEPHEN FRY: 'Ranjit Bolt is the deftest, most dexterous of wordsmiths, able to make an Alexandrine dance and anapaests do headstands. Here he is proving himself a limericist extraordinaire.' SIMON CALLOW
