A signed limited edition pamphlet of new sonnets by Simon Armitage, the Poet Laureate, on the the occasion of his 60th birthday.
LX collects fifteen sonnets in sixty stanzas. These verses find the poet in a conversational tussle with his argumentative and occasionally insolent soul. Mischievous and sometimes melancholy, the pieces reflect a long querulous relationship explored through ingenious workings of the sonnet form.
This pamphlet is being sold exclusively via independent bookshops as part of Independent Bookshop Week and via Faber Members.
