Philip Larkin Poems : Selected by Martin Amis Paperback
For the first time, Faber publish a selection from the poetry of Philip Larkin.
Drawing on Larkin's four collections and on his uncollected poems.
Chosen by Martin Amis. "Many poets make us smile; how many poets make us laugh - or, in that curious phrase, "laugh out loud" (as if there's another way of doing it)?
Who else uses an essentially conversational idiom to achieve such a variety of emotional effects?
Who else takes us, and takes us so often, from sunlit levity to mellifluous gloom? ...Larkin, often, is more than memorable: he is instantly unforgettable." (Martin Amis).
