The Customs House : Andrew Motion

A stunning new collection from the former Poet Laureate.

The book is in three sections, and opens with a sequence of war poems, Laurels and Donkeys, which draws on soldiers' experiences from the First and Second World war, through to the recent conflicts in Iraq and Afghanistan.

He also reads from The Cinder Path (Faber), shortlisted for the Ted Hughes Award for New Work in Poetry, and answers questions about his writing. Followed by book signing.

'Motion's greatest and most distinctive gift...is to look squarely at the world and describe it with a plain and unsentimental eloquence that makes world value seem all the more questionable.' Independent on Sunday

'... an honourable, humbling achievement' (The Guardian on The Customs House).
