Product description

Review

Her first book of poetry is an elegant collaged scrapbook (Observer)

A treasure . . . beautiful. Generous in its honesty, by the end you feel as though you have climbed into the colourful, and sometimes tortured, world of a passionate artist (iNews)

Pop's high priestess bares her soul in this candid collection of poems and lyrics . . . offering a chance to appreciate on the bare stage of the blank page the fineness of her words. And like fellow poet-musician Nick Cave, Welch has found a way for the song and the voice of the rabbit-hearted girl to coexist (Observer)

A varied, visually arresting tome, it brings together poems, lyrics, sketches and notes from Welch's personal and professional life, making the reader feel as though they're peeking into a private journal (Refinery 29)

An alchemy of memoir and imagination (Waterstones Newsletter)

From the Back Cover

Lyrics and never-before-seen poetry and sketches from the iconic vocalist of Florence and the Machine.

"Songs can be incredibly prophetic, like subconscious warnings or messages to myself, but I often don't know what I'm trying to say till years later. Or a prediction comes true and I couldn't do anything to stop it, so it seems like a kind of useless magic."

Since forming Florence + The Machine in 2007, Florence Welch has written three albums, Lungs, Ceremonials and How Big How Blue How Beautiful, all of which have been chart toppers all over the world, and she has been nominated and has won numerous international awards.
