Format: Audio CD
Having bought 'Catching Life by the Throat' and thoroughly enjoying it I have to say that 'Words That Burn' matches it - almost! One or two of the readings are a little 'stagy' and lack some feeling.

Having said that if you like well read poetry with good background information then this is the way to listen to it. The range of readers and poets is exceptional.

Please see al of my comments on the earlier book above. I am hoping to restart a Poetry Group in this Village for old people by using this material. Sadly ,combined old ages and infirmity resulted in the demise of the old group but it is hoped that the availability of more enjoyment for less effort will triumph

There was no mention in the description that the CD was missing. The book was ok but I really wanted to
listen to the CD.
