About the Author
Carol Ann Duffy has published four highly praised collections of poetry. Her last, Mean Time, won the Forward Poetry Prize and the Whitbread Poetry Prize. She lives in Manchester, England.
"[Duffy] offers us the past as it could have been. . . . [Her] project recalls the poems of the Americans Ai and Pamela White Hadas, but the élan of this volume sets it apart, the characters (and poems) triumphant." --The New Yorker
"Duffy is one of the freshest and bravest talents to emerge in British poetry--any poetry--for years." --Eavan Boland, The Independent on Sunday (London)
"These thirty poems vibrate with intense colloquialisms, physicality, energy, freshness, and cheek. . . . They leap off the page even in a silent reading. . . . The best are inventive, subversive, and written with great rhythmical and rhyming dash." --Anthony Thwaite, The Sunday Telegraph (London)
