Waterstones Says

Wonderfully democratic and inclusive, this anthology reflects the favourite poems of the nation, as chosen by everyone from world-famous astronauts to primary school teachers. Published to coincide with National Poetry Day, this collection explores the theme of truth through a diverse and always unpredictable range of verse.

Our Welsh Book of the Month for October 2019

Tell Me the Truth About Life is an indispensable anthology which celebrates poetry's power to tap into the truths that matter. Curated and introduced by Cerys Matthews, this collection draws on the wisdom of crowds: featuring poems nominated for their insight into truth by a range of ordinary and extraordinary people: from Britain's first astronaut, Helen Sharman, to sporting heroes and world-famous musicians, teachers, artists and politicians.

Their choices include contemporary work by Yrsa Daley-Ward, Warsan Shire and Kei Miller alongside classics by W H Auden, Emily Dickinson and Dylan Thomas. Here you will find poems to revive the spirit, ballads to mobilize and life-lines to hold you safe in the dark.

Compiled for National Poetry Day's twenty-fifth anniversary, Tell Me the Truth About Life is a book that reminds us we are never completely alone in our search to glimpse the truth.

Containing nominations from a number of high-profile poetry lovers and poets, including Michael Morpurgo, Mark Gatiss, Alice Oswald and Helen Sharman, among others.
