Listen to a sample

What to expect

SELECTED POEMS is a collection of poetry chosen by Carol Ann Duffy from her first four acclaimed novels: STANDING FEMALE NUDE, SELLING MANHATTAN, THE OTHER COUNTRY and MEAN TIME (winner of the Whitbread Poetry Award). It is read by the author – the first time she’s recorded her work as an audiobook.

Critics Review

  • So often with Duffy does the reader say ‘Yes, that’s it exactly

    that she could well become the representative poet of the present day'
  • Sean O’Brien, SUNDAY TIMES

    'Not only a fresh voice but a dexterity with language, that glorious juggling which poets sometimes achieve with a sense of surprise even to themselve s' Elizabeth Jennings, INDEPENDENT
  • A genuine and original poet

    Robert Nye, THE TIMES
