The Other Country was Carol Ann Duffy's third collection, and as with her later books, takes its readers on journeys that seem initially similar -- but soon prove anything but. This book leads our imagination to places our minds could not have suspected were there, or would not have dared to go alone. Some of its voices are disarmingly direct, while others blur the lines between fantasy and reality, confession and self-delusion, forcing us to re-examine everything we thought we knew about some of our most basic human drives and emotions. Deeply intelligent, unflinchingly honest, with a deftness of touch and tone, and openness all the more moving for its lack of sentimentality, The Other Country is as remarkable a collection today as it was on its first publication. 'You can't classify Carol Ann Duffy as a love poet or a comic poet or a political poet because she is all these things but so much more ...She gets straight to the emotions' Daisy Goodwin, Sunday Times 'Urgent, and packed with future classics, The Other Country is a book that proclaims that poetry is alive. Be in there early' Peter Forbes, Guardian
