Preorder 'With Love, Grief and Fury' audiobook on Audible


Hello my dears, just popping on here to make a quick post to share this - the preorder for my NEW audiobook 'With Love, Grief and Fury' went live online today. This audio version will be launched alongside the beautiful hardback edition on May 2nd 2024 with Canongate. 




With Love, Grief and Fury contains love poems, for people and the planet. Grief poems brimming with compassion, mourning what was and contemplating what could be. And poems of fire and fury that will kick some ass, tell the truth and inspire change and hope. Over thirty years after she first stormed the UK poetry scene, the trailblazing and award-winning writer Salena Godden has produced her most audacious and definitive collection to date. 

For those of you that enjoyed listening to my 'Mrs Death Misses Death' audiobook or that like to listen to poetry read aloud, this is the one for you. I hope you like it and I thank you in advance for all preorders as they really help any new title on its journey.

Here's some powerful artwork I have been loving on instagram by @DEVTHEPINEAPPLE - sharing this stunning work with solidarity and hope for the courage we need globally, not just for International Women's Day, not just for Mothers Day, but every day. I share these and once again call for a permanent ceasefire, freedom and libration, none of we are free, until we are all free.
