Praised by Gillian Clarke and Carol Ann Duffy, Paul Henry’s latest poetry collection, The Glass Aisle, contains lyrical love poems, elegies and observations from his Welsh childhood. The BBC presenter and poet, whose previous collections include The Brittle Sea and Boy Running (shortlisted for the Wales Book of the Year 2016), will be reading from his latest work. 

‘This haunting, elegiac collection, about music, and made of music, leaves a reader’s mind full of phrases, in both senses – verbal, and tonal – and exactitudes that catch the heart and lodge in the memory’. Gillian Clarke

‘In this virtuoso new collection, Paul Henry, poacher-like, tracks the journeys of the heart through landscape, love and loss. He takes his place as one of the most important Welsh poets now writing.’ Carol Ann Duffy
