  • The Universal Home Doctorby Simon Armitage

    Faber & Faber 2010; US$ 10.20

    As the title implies, Simon Armitage's flesh-and-blood account of numerous personal journeys reads like a private encyclopaedia of emotion and health.

  • Travelling Songsby Simon Armitage

    Faber & Faber 2010; US$ 7.28

    Simon Armitage once observed that there are two types of poems - those that try to work out the chemical equation for language, and those that tell stories and sings songs. These are very much the latter, a handful of lyrics and verses written over number of years, many being commissioned to celebrate or commemorate public events, others being part... more...
