This Poem... is a new short collection of verse by the inimitable Blake Morrison.

Bankers, tax havens, call centres, the riots, Jimmy Savile and the Olympics – all these and more appear alongside tender and more personal pieces by one of Britain’s best loved writers.

These witty, astute and hugely enjoyable snapshots of contemporary life are a topical tour-de-force – ‘news that will stay news’.

Blake Morrison is well known for his fiction and award-winning prose memoirs (including And When Did You Last See Your Father?). But he began as a poet and this pamphlet marks a welcome return to his favourite form. 

 

'Morrison brings delicately descriptive gifts and an alert intellect to his survey of the contemporary world' – The Scotsman

'One of our most sensitive and stylish writers.'  – Sunday Times

'Blake Morrison is a bloody marvel – you should read everything that carries his name.' – Tony Parsons
