Pessimism for Beginners

Author: Sophie Hannah
Publisher: Carcanet Press Ltd

Sophie Hannah’s sharp pen dissects modern life and relationships with insouciant honesty and ruthless wit, and her love poems evoke timeless feelings with a shrewd simplicity that deepens her range. An edge of desolation, tenderness—an occasional flash of cruelty—and an ebullient delight in language make this a book of bittersweet pleasures.
