The new collection from one of Britain’s most popular poets, The Toll is a tighly-wrought book on politics, family and a crumbling society that sees Luke Wright at the peak of his powers.
Honed on roads, stages and radio shows across the UK, this stunningly crafted new collection demands the cost of living in the contemporary world and explores the toll it takes on us all.
