Nicky Wire, Manic Street Preachers

I always make a point of reading poetry in the summer as I like the backdrop of misery while everyone is pretending to have fun in the sun. I recommend Don Paterson's Landing Light (Faber £8.99); themes of emotion, concealment and silence radiate throughout the poetry. In particular 'The Forest of the Suicides', which is one of the greatest titles ever. I recommend this to everyone.
