About this product
- DescriptionA thrilling new collection from the hugely acclaimed British poet Simon Armitage. With its vivid array of dramatic mologues, allegories, and tall tales, this absurdist, unreal exploration of modern society brings us a chorus of unique and unforgettable voices.
All are welcome at this twilit, visionary carnival: the man whose wife drapes a border-curtain across the middle of the marital home; the black bear with a dark secret; the woman who oversees giant swballs in the freezer. My girlfriend won me in a sealed auction but wouldn't / tell me how much she bid, begins one speaker; I hadn't meant to go grave robbing with Richard Dawkins / but he can be very persuasive, ather tells us. The storyteller behind this human tapestry has about him a sly undercover idealism: he shares with many of his characters a stargazing capacity for belief, or for being, at the very least, entirely genuine in his disbelief. In these startling poems, with their unique cartoon-strip energy and air of misrule, Armitage creates world after world, peculiar and always particular, where the only certainty is the unexpected.
