With New Light for the Old Dark, Sam Willets proves himself a powerfully original voice in contemporary British poetry.

Join Sam as he reads and discusses a remarkable debut characterized throughout by a powerful fusion of technical flair, elegancy of expression and candour. A spiritual autobiography for a secular era, New Light for the Old Dark represents a journey through the trials of addiction, personal loss, and historical tragedy, to the lyrically redemptive prizes of love and writing itself.

Willets is a major new talent and should not be missed.
