RESERVE AND COLLECT FROM THE 1853 GALLERY, SALTS MILL

Washing Lines

£10.00

Author: Janie Hextall

The poems in this collection are about laundry and washing – and how they reflect emotions to do with family, relationships and memory.

Claire Armistead of the Guardian said it was one of her favourite poetry books of the year; Sebastian Shakespeare lauded it as ‘the most original and entertaining poetry anthology of the year’ in Tatler… and we love it too!

Poets including Gillian Clarke, Seamus Heaney, Helen Dunmore, Michael Longley, Pablo Neruda, and Simon Armitage celebrate things like clean linen or the rhythmic dance of two people folding sheets together. The book also contains some beautiful woodcuts on a laundry theme.
