Book of selected lyrics by Kate Bush, with a foreword by novelist David Mitchell. Published by Faber & Faber on 7 December 2018, the book presents 87 song lyrics in a thematic selection made by Kate herself. According to the author’s note in the book, ‘all the lyrics have been reviewed as works of verse without their music and so in some places are more detailed than how they originally appeared on the albums’.
