The best poetry collections coming to bookshops in October

Bookshops always like a few surprises on their shelves to make a visit a little more special. One of those specials this time round is The Hidden Beauty Of The Air. Edited by the collective the Years, this collection of poetry, poetry chapbooks and new original poetry collects has been picked by the Editors of our book Club as one of the best releases of the autumn.

The prize for wry style and refreshingly candid observations is won by Paris, Paris by the poet Matt Lyon, a collection of witty and gently satirical poems about London life, style and erudition. He mocks writers, restauranteurs, artists, critics, writers and socialites, some of the most surprising evocations of the place may well be of Peter Sissons, the eminent London-based Canadian poet, in the book and shows how some of these commentators might be mistaken in their assessment of his city.

The Best of Thomas Zeldesek Jonason’s Set in Copenhagen and Based on Originals with more art, but a different point of view, as he looks at his home city, the city that has shaped the careers of many of his fellow Danish writers and artists.

These are just two of the books our book club have chosen. In alphabetical order, we think you’ll find some others that will delight and surprise you, as you browse our home in a lovely new Alhambra space.
