'Fighters for Life' A Political Book
Bookmarks Bookshop have published a book of my poems selected from the political poems I've written over the last few years. All proceeds will go to helping the Bookshop stay solvent. Here's how they've billed it.

"The writer, poet, broadcaster Michael Rosen has been gaining wide recognition of late with his recent appointment as children's laureate. This new collection of Michael's poetry draws together a selection of his most explicitly political work over the past three decades. It includes 'Who Killed Blair Peach?' from 1980, marking the death of the Anti Nazi League protester and London school teacher at the hands of the Special Patrol Group. Other highlights include the extraordinary 'Songs For The Dead', a three part poem composed in the wake of the 7 July 2005 London bombings. The poems in Fighters For Life have been specially selected by Michael and all proceeds from the book go to the Friends of Bookmarks appeal. They are all introduced with a short essay from Michael outlining some ideas as to what poetry is about and what it can achieve politically."
