Nine Horses

Billy Collins

Billy Collins is one of the world's most popular poets. While his poems often begin in the everyday and domestic, fans know that they might end anywhere - and that they will lift their heads from the book to a world startlingly different from the one they had left moments before. Billy Collins's previous collection, Taking Off Emily Dickinson's Clothes, was an extraordinary success, introducing thousands of readers to his exhilarating poetry for the first time. By turns wildly funny and intensely moving, Nine Horses looks set to win Billy Collins even more admirers.

'Billy Collins is one of my favourite poets in the world' Carol Ann Duffy
