Written from a teenage child's point of view, "Motion" captures the pathos and puzzlement of childhood with great clarity of expression and freshness of memory. We encounter a strange but beguiling extended family, a profound love of the natural world, a troubled schooling, and a growing passion for books and writing. By turns funny, heartbreaking and elegiac, "In the Blood" is a deeply moving portrait of the bond between a mother and her son, and the capturing of a moment in time before the loss of childhood innocence.
Andrew Motion was born in 1952 and read English at University College, Oxford. Following a glittering and award-winning literary career, he was appointed Poet Laureate in 1999. He is the author of nine books of poems, and won considerable acclaim for his biographies of Keats and Larkin.
