Molly Naylor writes poems that speak frankly and boldly about learning how to live. Part confession, part manifesto; Badminton is a book that manages to celebrate humanity whilst despairing of its ugly bits. Molly Naylor is the co-writer and creator of Sky One sitcom After Hours. She has been commissioned by the BBC, the RSC, the BFI, Battersea Arts Centre and many more organisations. She adapted her critically acclaimed solo show Whenever I Get Blown Up I Think Of You for BBC Radio 4. She has performed her stories and poems at festivals and events all over the world. 'Like all the best writers Molly Naylor makes it look easy. Here, in language as clear as a glass of water, are poems so intimately confessional we feel like intruders, and yet so generous, giving and warm we are honoured guests. Filled with hilarious observations on the minutiae of life, each revealing deep and personal truths, Badminton is a collection to return to over and over - and to share, share, share.' Nathan Filer 'Brave, funny, tough and beautiful writing' The Guardian (on Whenever I Get Blown Up I Think Of You)
