Description

Lyrics and never-before-seen poetry and sketches from Florence Welch of Florence + the Machine

Songs can be incredibly prophetic, like subconscious warnings or messages to myself, but I often don't know what I'm trying to say till years later. Or a prediction comes true and I couldn't do anything to stop it, so it seems like a kind of useless magic.

'A treasure . . . beautiful. Generous in its honesty, by the end you feel as though you have climbed into the colourful, and sometimes tortured, world of a passionate artist' iNews

Review quote

Her first book of poetry is an elegant collaged scrapbook * Observer * A treasure . . . beautiful. Generous in its honesty, by the end you feel as though you have climbed into the colourful, and sometimes tortured, world of a passionate artist * iNews * Pop's high priestess bares her soul in this candid collection of poems and lyrics . . . offering a chance to appreciate on the bare stage of the blank page the fineness of her words. And like fellow poet-musician Nick Cave, Welch has found a way for the song and the voice of the rabbit-hearted girl to coexist * Observer * A varied, visually arresting tome, it brings together poems, lyrics, sketches and notes from Welch's personal and professional life, making the reader feel as though they're peeking into a private journal * Refinery 29 * An alchemy of memoir and imagination * Waterstones Newsletter *
