    Carcanet 2014; US$ 14.51

    The poems in Kelly Grovier?s third collection share a fascination with the mysteries that underlie our everyday existence, that ‘other world? we sense in the ‘undeciphered sands? shifting at our feet.

    Carcanet 2014; US$ 14.51

    David C. Ward?s first full-length poetry collection combines wry meditations on twenty-first-century life, work and family with observations of America – its landscapes, its history, its politics.

  • The Other Mountainby Rowan Williams

    Carcanet 2014; US$ 14.51

    In The Other Mountain Rowan Williams relives moments of intense trial, when women and men are transformed in spirit, and sometimes in body also. He not only reads the signs as they appear in nature and history: he lives them through language. Imagination and words bring us close to our condition. They can witness and relive in all humility the circumstances... more...

    Carcanet 2014; US$ 21.80

  • Pessimism for Beginnersby Sophie Hannah

    Carcanet 2011; US$ 13.05

    Sophie Hannah's sharp pen dissects modern life and relationships with insouciant honesty and ruthless wit, and her love poems evoke timeless feelings with a shrewd simplicity that deepens her range. An edge of desolation, tenderness -- an occasional flash of cruelty -- and an ebullient delight in language make this a book of bittersweet pleasures.... more...

  • Watering Canby Caroline Bird

    Carcanet 2011; US$ 14.51

    Caroline Bird's two earlier collections were acclaimed for their exuberant energy, surreal imagination and passion -- 'a bit of a Howl for a new generation', wrote the Hudson Review. Watering Can celebrates life as an early twenty-something. The poems, writes Caroline Bird, 'contain prophetic videos, a moon colonised by bullies, weeping scholars,... more...
