Description - God's Gift to Women by Don Paterson

Awarded the Forward Prize for the best first collection of 1993, Don Paterson's Nil Nil introduced readers to an already mature and striking poetic personality. Formally intrepid, master of a copious vocabulary, a flamboyant jokester and connoisseur of the macabre, the young writer cut an immediately distinctive dash.

God's Gift to Women continues the adventure into deeper and darker territory. It includes 'A Private Bottling', which won first prize in the 1994 Arvon Poetry Competition, and a sequel to the earlier tour de force, 'The Alexandrian Library', as well as poems addressing the perennial obsessions of sex, drink, music, death and trains. A new, delicately lyrical touch is also in evidence.
