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

    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.

  • Gigby Simon Armitage

    Penguin Books Ltd 2008; US$ 15.98
