Gold from the Stone (SIGNED COPIES)
Books of the Year 2016 No: 6
Lemn Sissay's first poetry collection was written aged eighteen and hand-sold to miners on the picket lines of Warrington. Since then his poems have been sculpted in iron and built from concrete, declaimed in over twenty countries. He has performed to thousands of football fans at the FA Cup Final, to hundreds of thousands as the poet of the 2012 Olympics, and to millions across the airwaves on BBC Radio 4 and across the nation's TV screens. He has become one of the nation's best-loved voices.
Bringing together new writing and a selection of Lemn Sissay's best-loved poems, Gold from the Stone is a career-spanning collection from the award-winning poet and national treasure.
