This magisterial collection of his letters – to recipients including his family and fellow poets Auden, Eliot and Larkin – offers a humane, witty reflection on his Irish Protestant heritage, his turbulent love life, his work at the BBC – and an enthusiastic celebration of what he described in his poem 'Snow' as 'the drunkenness of things being various'.
