Faber & Faber - Emily Berry: Dear Boy
Emily Berry: Dear Boy
Reviewing the Forward Prize-shortlisted Dear Boy in the Observer, Kate Kellaway wrote, 'Emily Berry's debut is a treat. She is a new yet anything but hesitant voice. What is stimulating is that she approaches poetry as a flexible, permissive, dynamic ally. She seems to have complete freedom with form, and will use a poem whenever helpful as a vehicle for escape. A getaway car ... Berry's range is amazing.' In our latest Faber Poetry Podcast, Emily Berry reads a number of the poems, and tells us more about them along the way.
