MRS DEATH MISSES DEATH — BBC RADIO 4 DOCUMENTARY ON AIR SUNDAY DECEMBER 2ND

“Salena Godden is one of the UK’s foremost poets and known for the graphic power of her work. Mrs Death Misses Death is a new work in progress by Salena in which she personifies death as a woman. The work is a collaboration, a novel and an album, with fiction and poetry, and soundtrack composed with Peter Coyte.

Death is a reality few of us want to confront, so how do we talk about our mortality? Salena allows us to follow the development of this experimental new work from page to stage. Mrs Death Misses Death, she says, is not simply a book about death or dying, but about ritual, mourning and love, and ultimately, it’s about celebrating this life, this world, and our short time here.”

The R4 BBC documentary following the last 12 months of work in progress, broadcast on BBC Radio 4, Sunday December 2nd at 4.30pm. Tune in!
