John Elinger

John Elinger is the pen-name of Sir Christopher Ball, sometime Warden of Keble College, Oxford, and Chancellor of the University of Derby; he describes these poems as 'a labour of love, and a celebration and study of marriage - our own and those of others'. The book is illustrated by his wife, Wendy (Lady Ball), his partner of sixty years. The collection is warmly endorsed by Sir Paul Coleridge, Founder and Chairman of Marriage Foundation.
