Love Makes a Mess of Dying

Price: £7.5

Selected by Carol Ann Duffy for the 2019 Laureate's Choice Collection


Examining the collision between tragedy and hope, Love Makes a Mess of Dying follows the struggle to make sense of the prognosis and treatment of a life-threatening disease whilst surrounded by the love and support of friends and family.


The search for the truth of an experience which seems to belie words gives Gilbert’s poetry urgency, eerie clear-sightedness, and a lush Keatsian lyricism
