Write The First Customer Review

Initially influenced by the Beats, whom she helped introduce to British readers, Libby Houston sprang to prominence on the Edinburgh Festival Fringe in the early 60s. In the four decades since, her poetry has walked an exhilarating high wire, scorning fashion and compromise. Here are included, her best works, ranging from short comic pieces and longer narratives based on ballads and fairy tales, to finely controlled but deeply personal poems.
