by Carol Ann Duffy - £10.99 Pan Macmillan (Picador) (2017)
paperback ISBN 13: 9781509852666 | ISBN 10: 1509852662
This unique collection of poems from the Poet Laureate, filled with her characteristic wit, is a feminist classic and a modern take on age-old mythology.
Who? Him. The Husband. Hero. Hunk. The Boy Next Door. The Paramour. The Je t'adore.
Behind every famous man is a great woman - and from the quick-tongued Mrs Darwin to the lascivious Frau Freud, from the adoring Queen Kong to the long-suffering wife of the Devil himself, each one steps from her counterpart's shadow to tell her side of the story in this irresistible collection.
Original, subversive, full of imagination and quicksilver wit, The World's Wife is Poet Laureate Carol Ann Duffy at her beguiling best.
