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 wars, through to the recent conflicts in Iraq and Afghanistan.

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