Although best known as a novelist, Alan Sillitoe's poetry is central to his work as a writer. He said that his poems revealed his own inner life in a way that he found impossible to do in fiction. Presented here are Sillitoe's poems that present the world as he saw it. Using a storyteller's skill, he brought to life the people and places that captured his imagination and took him on a search for meaning.
This selection has been chosen by his wife, the poet Ruth Fainlight. 126pp
