Paul Birtill's new Collected Poems features a selection of the poet's work published by Hearing Eye since 1987. These are dark poems based on the poet's experience: often dealing with universal themes of family, love and the desire for anonymity.
"Darkly comic pieces."

"If you believe that one of the uses of poetry is to make you feel less alone, then read Paul Birtill's Willing to Change."
