Michael Symmons Roberts’ Selected Poems (Cape) brings together the best work from six remarkable collections. Professor of Poetry at Manchester Metropolitan University, Michael has won the Forward Prize, the Costa Poetry Prize and the Whitbread Poetry Award, and been shortlisted for the Griffin International Poetry Prize and the T.S. Eliot Prize. Further acclaim has come for the nonfiction book, Edgelands, co-written with Paul Farley, and his extensive work for radio.

Alison Moore's first novel, The Lighthouse, was shortlisted for the Man Booker Prize. Both The Lighthouse and her second novel, He Wants, were Observer Books of the Year. A third novel, Death and the Seaside, is out now. Her short fiction has been broadcast on BBC Radio 4 Extra and collected in The Pre-War House And Other Stories.

Presented in partnership with the School of English, University of Nottingham.
