  • Galdosby Jo Labanyi

    Taylor and Francis 2014; US$ 66.95

    Benito Perez Galdos has been described as 'the greatest Spanish novelist since Cervantes.' His work constitutes a major contribution to the nineteenth-century novel, rivalling that of Dickens of Balzac and making him an essential candidate for any course on the fiction of the period. Jo Labanyi's study is supported by a wide-rangting introduction,... more...

  • The Long and the Short of Itby Roy Fisher

    Bloodaxe Books 2014; US$ 23.99

    This new expanded edition of The Long and the Short of It covers 55 years of Roy Fisher's poetry. Playing the language, pleasuring the imagination and teasing the senses, Fisher's witty, inventive and anarchic poetry has given lasting delight to his many dedicated readers for over half a century. Choosing this book on Desert Island Dis, Ian McMillan... more...

  • The Sparkling Jewel of Naturismby Selima Hill

    Bloodaxe Books 2014; US$ 15.99

    The Sparkling Jewel of Naturism brings together three seemingly unrelated poem sequences by 'this brilliant lyricist of human darkness' (Fiona Sampson). The poems in each spark off unexpected connections and surprises, despite their contrasting concerns: sisters in Doormat (and being the object of someone else's jealousy), little girls in Happiness... more...

  • So Many Moving Partsby Tiffany Atkinson

    Bloodaxe Books 2014; US$ 15.99

    So Many Moving Parts, Tiffany Atkinson's third collection, is an eccentric 21st-century meditation on the awkwardness of body and spirit and their unexpected, often unwanted intrusions into the business of everyday life. Lyrical and experimental by turns, these poems push familiar events - commuting, telephones, babysitting, foreign travel - to open... more...

  • The Blue Denby Stephanie Norgate

    Bloodaxe Books 2014; US$ 14.99

    In The Blue Den, people travel along the edges of roads, landscapes and emotions. The poems give voice to a stream under ice, a flooded road, and an ant beneath the sky. Strongly visual and imaginative, these poems explore the edges of memory, the mutual dependency of man and nature. Stephanie Norgate's second collection celebrates the power of intense... more...

  • The Egg of Zeroby Philip Gross

    Bloodaxe Books 2014; US$ 12.99

    The zero at the heart of these poems is not nothing -not simply absence, forgetting or loss, though there are moving elegies among them. This is a not-quite-definable O that gives surprising edge to life and language round it. Direct, meditative, playful, hyper-alert, Philip Gross's distinctively wide range of tones work together in a subtle, searching... more...

  • Laterby Philip Gross

    Bloodaxe Books 2014; US$ 15.99

    Challenging and tender, these poems are a rite of passage. Philip Gross's much praised previous collection, Deep Field, explored the loosening connections between the self and language in his refugee father's old age. This new book goes further, through the failing of the body, through the mind's weakening hold on the borderline between the present... more...

  • The Burning of the Books and other poemsby George Szirtes

    Bloodaxe Books 2014; US$ 15.99

    The title-poem of George Szirtes' The Burning of the Books and other poems is the core of this collection of narrative sequences by a writer who came to Britain as a child refugee after the Hungarian Uprising. Book burning is associated with the Nazis' burning of what they considered to be subversive books in 1933, but the practice has a long history,... more...

  • The Mining Roadby Leanne O'Sullivan

    Bloodaxe Books 2014; US$ 14.99

    The Mining Road, Leanne O'Sullivan's third poetry collection, finds inspiration in the disused copper mines that haunt the rugged terrain around Allihies, near her home at Beara, in West Cork. Like remnants of a lost world, the mines' ruined towers, shafts, man-engines and dressing floors, evoke an elemental landscape in which men and women laboured... more...

  • Bad Machineby George Szirtes

    Bloodaxe Books 2014; US$ 15.99

    The body is the 'bad machine' of George Szirtes' latest book of poems. The sudden death of his elderly father and of his younger friend, the poet Michael Murphy, remind him how machines -sources of energy and delight in their prime -go so easily wrong; and that change in the body is a signal for moving on. But language too is a body. Here, politi,... more...
