Taking Off Emily Dickinson's Clothes by Billy Collins
Sorry, this product is not currently available to order


Picador's big poetry title for 2000. A funny and moving collection from one of America's bestselling poetsBilly Collins is one of America's best loved poets and comes armed with plaudits from John Updike, E Annie Proulx. He is one of Carol Ann Duffy's favourite living poets and this Selected is the first time he will be published in the UK. From a poem about the relentless barking of next door's dog-Another Reason Why I don't Keep a Gun in the House-to an elegy to The Best Cigarette. Just read one poem and you'll be a committed fan. Billy Collins gets right to the heart of things. He is one of the funniest poets writing today. Billy Collins is a fantastic performer (his readings at the Poetry festival in Aldeburgh were sold out, as were all his US collections) and will hopefully be brought over by the South Bank, London in the Autumn. His readings are unmissable. This collection should be The World's Wife of 2000r.
