  • The Widow Gingerby Pip Granger

    Transworld 2011; US$ 8.15

    It is 1954, the year Roger Bannister won the four-minute mile. Rosie, and her beloved Auntie Maggie are opening up their café in Old Compton Street for Uncle Bert's breakfast special when the Widow Ginger comes to call. The Widow Ginger, an ex-GI with ice-cold blue eyes, is especially scary. He has unfinished business with Uncle Bert... 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...

  • Deceiving Wild Creaturesby Jeremy Over

    Carcanet 2011; US$ 14.51

    The naturalist Gilbert White is at the heart of this collection. Like him, Jeremy Over explores an ecology with meticulous acuity. His poems are 'found in the field': the beauty and oddity of the language of others is brought into sharp focus. Robert Herrick's 'sweet disorder in the dress' is subjected to a series of disrobings; a guidebook, instruction... more...

  • A to Bby Gerry McGrath

    Carcanet 2011; US$ 14.51

    A to B began as a poem about a journey: it became a journey in itself, a collection that travels through emotions and places, unfolding to the rhythms of discovery and memory. Places and people reveal their secrets; fragile bonds of love link past to present. In the book's first part, an elusive pattern is glimpsed in fragments: a plane climbs into... more...

  • Jilted Cityby Patrick McGuinness

    Carcanet 2010; US$ 14.51

    The poems in Jilted City inhabit in-between-places, when a border is being crossed, a word is slipping into another language, when memory is translating loss. From ?Stations where the train doesn?t stop? in ?Blue Guide?, following a train journey through Belgium, to?City of Lost Walks?, English versions of a dissident Romanian poet whose ?poetry fails... more...

  • Sound Housesby Will Eaves

    Carcanet 2011; US$ 14.51

    Will Eaves? first book of poems explores several continents, moods and stages of life. Common experience ? of growing up, growing older, losing a parent, being in love, enjoying the natural world in all its nearness and remoteness ? provides his themes. Wherever they are set, in the Australian bush or in a West Country sickroom, the poems keep faith... more...

  • Arguing with Malarchyby Carola Luther

    Carcanet 2011; US$ 14.51

    Arguing with Malarchy is full of voices. Tender, sinister, sad or cantankerous, they compel us to attend to their realities, the glimpsed depths of their stories, the distances they have travelled. Carola Luther?s poems are alert to the ways a life can be briefly snared in the turn of a phrase ? or in the moment when language fails. She explores silences,... more...

  • Red Houseby Sasha Dugdale

    Carcanet 2011; US$ 14.51

    In Red House, her third collection, Sasha Dugdale evokes the ghosts and presences that flit about on the margins of our lives. She finds them at the edge of towns where superstores and allotments blur an older landscape, in Europe where emigrants leave their gods, their neighbours, their memories 'jettisoned like old clothes'; and across the chalk... more...

  • Trouble Came to the Turnipby Caroline Bird

    Carcanet 2011; US$ 14.51

    Following Looking Through Letterboxes, her first collection (2002), Caroline Bird was acclaimed as a vivid and precocious new talent. Trouble Came to the Turnip confirms her originality as she strikes out again in new directions, taking nothing for granted. Her poems are ferociously vital, fantastical, sometimes violent, almost always savagely humorous... more...

  • We needed coffee but...'by Matthew Welton

    Carcanet 2012; US$ 14.51

    From its title, which runs to 101 words in full, to its wordless concrete poems; from its World Cup fixture list to its transformations of four-letter words, 'We needed coffee but...' is audacious, mischievous, even outrageous. As in his award-winning first collection The Book of Matthew, the poet attends precisely to each detail: the rhythms are... more...
