Description

After the huge success of Nil Nil (a Poetry Book Society Choice and winner of the Forward Prize best first collection), Don Paterson's second collection was impatiently awaited. His readers were not disappointed. In God's Gift to Women, straight autobiography mixes with invention, exaggeration, technical dazzle and sheer cheek to produce a book quite unlike any other.

John Redmond; 'Lyrical yet austere, straight-talking but at ease with eloquence... some of the most outstanding poems published this year.' Helen Dunmore"
