Shortlisted for the 2010 Michael Marks Award.

Reprinted and still available from The Poetry Business.

"Returning to the pamphlet form, and the pamphlet publisher, which first launched Simon Armitage s remarkable career the variety in this collection almost feels like a lap of honour. Quietly ironised monologues, flashes of startlingly apt imagery, and a dry but never arid sense of humour are typical of the poems in The Motorway Service Station." The British Library

"The front man of his generation… The most imaginative and prolific poet now writing." Poetry Review

"Armitage's skill is to reach beyond the prosaic for deeper mysteries… (he) speaks with an utter lack of sentimentality or pomposity of the transcendent mysteries that lie beyond the ordinary moment." The Times
