In Late Shift at the Pickle Factory Mary Dickins presents the reader with
an intensely crafted patchwork of stories, reminiscences, observations
and whimsy. Her poems are tender, sad, joyful, surreal and ridiculous
and always characterised by the distinctive blend of wordplay, humour,
poignancy and politics that her readership have come to expect. Mary
believes that there is nothing stranger, more intriguing and revealing than
the everyday life, people and places that we take for granted. She invites
you to explore and enjoy this book as part of her poetic legacy drawn
from an exuberant and challenging life, well lived.

‘Mary Dickins is my rescue remedy…her poems fill up my heart.’
Laurie Bolger

‘Mary Dickins is one of the funniest, most heart-warming poets around. This
collection blends her trademark wit and instinctive kindness, with stories of
poignant relevance and ludicrously sweet daftness! Mary just is my favourite.’
Jack Rooke

‘Late Shift at the Pickle Factory is one of those books I will keep handy for
when I need to boost my mood. Worlds away from sentimental feel-good poetry
it combines optimism and humour with political fire. Dickins is never preachy
and excels at the rare art of writing genuinely funny poems. Never selfaggrandising
this is poetry to provoke and delight.’
Pauline Sewards

‘Wry, witty ,whimsical poems that examine and celebrate the daftness, delight
and detail of everyday lives.’
James Mc Dermott
