Recollections in Tranquillity
Winner of the first ever Whitbread Book of the Year Award in 1985 for Elegies and a giant of the poetry stage ever since, Douglas Dunn presents his much-anticipated new collection, The Noise of a Fly, his first for 16 years and the first since being awarded the Queen's Gold Medal for Poetry in 2013. His new work plays gleefully with grumpiness while looking movingly at loss and ageing. An hour to savour. Chaired by Brian Taylor.
