A new volume of Daisy Goodwin's bestselling blend of poetry and self-help to tie in with a major 6 part BBC poetry season presented by Daisy herself. Daisy Goodwin's '101 Poems' books have established themselves as an essential feature of the bookshop, beloved of WH Smith and selling in tens of thousands. The formula has proved so successful that Channel 4 have commissioned Daisy to present three Saturday night one-hour programmes of poetry readings from the famous and the not-so-famous, with discussions of how each poem has changed their lives. The likes of Christopher Lee, Bill Bailey, Lisa Tarbuck, Damien Lewis, Prunella Scales, Greg Wise, Ian Hart and Roger McGough will all star in the series, which will be produced by Talkback (who created, among other things, 'Have I Got News for You'). So this anthology will have some of the poems from the previous books, but at least fifty percent new ones, and will be the same format as the others, with Daisy featuring prominently on the cover. A surefire winner in this wonderfully successful series.
