Known principally as a broadcaster and successful children's poet, Michael Rosen published his first book of poems for adults, Carrying the Elephant, in 2002, triggered by the sudden death of his teenage son, Eddie.
Carrying the Elephant is currently unavailable, but most of the wonderfully honest and moving poems about Eddie and his death at aged 18 are contained within this volume of Selected Poems - now specially available through The Compassionate Friends.
Michael Rosen is a patron of The Compassionate Friends.
