A new collection of poems from bestselling poet, novelist and memoirist, Blake Morrison
‘A cul-de-sac, a dead-end track,
A sandbanked strand to sink a fleet,
A bay, a bar, a strip, a trap,
A wrecking ground, that’s Shingle Street.’
Blake Morrison’s first two collections, Dark Glasses (1984) and The Ballad of a Yorkshire Ripper(1987) established him as one of our most inventive and accomplished contemporary poets. In his first full-length collection for nearly thirty years, Shingle Street sees a return to the form with which he started his career.
“Shingle Street is a bravura performance that’s also solid and heartfelt.” The Observer
