Description

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, it is 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.
