About Skin & Blister
Blake Morrison writes: ‘Between June and September 2021, I wrote this series of poems about my sister, who had died at the age of 67 two years previously… SKIN & BLISTER – Cockney rhyming slang for sister – seemed a good title for the poems: our relationship was intimate but also painful.’
