You Do Not Need Another Self-Help Book is Sarah Salway's first poetry collection. Her poems have won significant prizes in competitions organized by Poetry London, the Essex Poetry Festival and The New Writer, and have appeared in publications including the Financial Times, the Virago Book of Shopping, Mslexia, Pen International and Poetry London. Sarah is the current Canterbury Laureate, and author of three novels and a collection of short stories. Her website is www.sarahsalway.net In this stunning debut collection, imagination is indeed 'the single currency' as bankers burn stocks for fuel, Icarus's sister goes shopping, a muse talks back and God plays a prank on the worlds' backsides. Here too are poems that, with uncanny insights and a keen wit, expose the workings of the family, bearing witness not only to our epiphanies but to what fails to sustain us.
