Synopsis: In gathering four decades of work, Hugo Williams' "Collected Poems" brings back into print a vast body of material long since unavailable - from his 1965 debut "Symptoms of Loss" to "Self-Portrait With a Slide" (1990) - including "Writing Home" (1985), described by Mick Imlah in the "Independent on Sunday" as 'a classic of creative autobiography'. The edition is brought right up to date with his most recent work: "Dock Leaves", a PBS Choice of 1994, and "Billy's Rain", winner of the 1999 T. S. Eliot Award. ""Collected Poems" brings together work from eight books that testify to Hugo Williams' reputation as a master of irony and autobiography; a writer subtly able to 'slip back to the past as effortlessly as a dreamer". ("The Times").
About the Author: Hugo Williams was born in 1942 and grew up in Sussex. He worked on the London Magazine from 1961 to 1970, since when he has earned his living as a journalist and travel writer.
