Book Description

1 May 2009
In the decade since publication of his first collection, The Boy from the Chemist is Here to See You, Paul Farley has become widely regarded as one of Britain's leading poets. During that time he has written regularly for BBC radio. Field Recordings gathers together all his broadcast poetry, and includes detailed author notes and an afterword which illuminates not only the origins of Farley's passion for radio but also some of the potentials and pitfalls of writing for the airwaves. Fans of his work will be happy to encounter these new poems, recognizing familiar concerns and recurring themes, while new readers can easily delight in the music and invention Farley raises effortlessly from the everyday.

"Farley is one of our most vital and engaging voices." - W.N. Herbert

4.0 out of 5 stars one free poem ... 22 May 2009
All these poems were written to be broadcast on radio - reading them is like having your own private performance. Funny, nostalgic and beautiful - and some short enough to be quoted in full `July (Wedding Haiku) `The ladybird's wing / trails from its shell: a bride's dress / caught in the car door.''
