Alexa, What Is There to Know About Love?
A hilarious and moving poetry collection from bestselling poet, Costa Prize shortlisted novelist and Twitter laureate, Brian Bilston.
‘Brian Bilston is a laureate for our fractured times.’ Ian McMillan
‘Someone who knows their way round both a joke and a bittersweet narrative.’ The Times
‘Part John Cooper Clarke, part Frank Sidebottom . . . all brilliant.’ Esquire
‘Bilston is a magician with words’ Guardian
Alexa, what is there to know about love? is a wonderful collection of poems about love in all its forms, covering everything from romantic love to familial love, to long-distance love, and even love on the internet.
The collection also features poems about the true passions for many booklovers, reading and literature, and the odd one about the subject causing many of us heartbreak: politics. With titles like ‘Hold My Hand While We Jump Off This Cliff’ and ‘Remembrance of Things Pasta’, there’s something for even the most jaded romantic within these pages.
The perfect, witty gift for Valentine’s and beyond.
