Description

From the phenomenally bestselling author of The Curious Incident of the Dog in the Night-time comes Mark Haddon's first collection of poems.
That Mark Haddon's first book after The Curious Incident of the Dog in the Night-time is a book of poetry may surprise his many fans; that it is also one of such virtuosity and range will not.
The Talking Horse and the Sad Girl and the Village Under the Sea reveals a poet of great versatility and formal talent. All the gifts so admired in Haddon's prose are in strong evidence here - the humanity, the dark humour, and the uncanny ventriloquism - but Haddon is also a writer of considerable seriousness, lyric power, and surreal invention. This book will consolidate his reputation as one of the most imaginative writers in contemporary literature.
