C, Peter Reading, 1984
Publisher: Secker & Warburg
C was Reading’s seventh book and the fourth to receive a Poetry Book Society Recommendation. It consists of 100 100-word units, some in prose form, some in diverse verse forms: haiku, sonnet, iambic pentameter, amongst many others. Reading said of it, “C is about having a terminal illness and ways in which people confront death and dying.”
