Dannie Abse Speak, Old Parrot

Poet Dannie Abse returned to Jewish Book Week with a new collection for his 90th Birthday year on love, medicine, the passing of time and Jewish folk tradition. At its autobiographical heart is a vision of human possibilities, a delight in things seen and achieved and an awareness of the transience of it all. With readings by Diana Hoddinott.
