COLLECTED POEMS OF EDITH SITWELL a "No. 1 Choice" for National Poetry Month

The Week asked 93-year-old New Yorker and actor Mimi Weddell to name her favorite books of all time in the current issue. Top of the list? Collected Poems by Edith Sitwell. "My No.1 choice," reports Weddell, who is the star and subject of Hats Off, a new documentary,"because rhythm is part of my soul as are poems of all kinds, ancient to contemporary. Sitwell's spirited humor and love of language make her so alive."
