The Heartless Traffic
Chair: Suzi Feay
Jeremy Robson, described by The Times as ‘a champion of poetry’ selects the best of his poems from the early 1960s to his most recent collections, plus 50 new poems. A book about friendships with diverse figures from Ron Moody to Dannie Abse, of childhood haunts, Jewish roots, youthful passions and the rumbling of war; about change and regret, politics and jazz, love and loss. Robson will be reading from and discussing his new book with critic Suzi Feay, and also from his entertaining recent memoir: Under Cover: A Poet’s Life in Publishing.
