Sophie Hannah's broadcasts and public readings have proven extremely popular. Her poetry, cunning in its precise use of traditional form, manages to bring into play the freedoms we associate with modernism. Here is a poet of immense resource, witty and heartbreaking by turns, always fully alive in her language. Leaving and Leaving You focuses on love, loss and the different ways in which people - for better or worse - can be significant to each other. What draws us together, and what keeps us apart? Hannah is fascinated by the ways in which others enter and leave our lives, and the imprints they make.
Praise for Sophie Hannah 'Shall I put it in capitals? SOPHIE HANNAH IS A GENIUS.' Be that as it may, Hotels like Houses provides a new range of romantic ironies, light and dark laughter, for her readership.'
