The prevailing mood of The Pelt of Wasps is one of unease, often elegiac, tinged with pleasure, barbed with pain. The poems hold a worried balance between celebration and anxiety, restraint and longing. The book includes David Constantine's long poem Lady Hamilton and the Elephant Man, recently broadcast on Radio 3.David Constantine writes: 'Wasps, many hundreds of them, are pressing against the window of a room in which a lamp has been left on all night. That poem finishes: I bless my life: that so much wants in. Most of the poems in this new collection have to do with the pressure of phenomena, occurrences and other people on an individual consciousness, and the determined will of that individuality to press back and extend itself. The poems continue old obsessions, love and loss, but these in reality are never repetitious since we are always, each time, older. The long poem Lady Hamilton and the Elephant Man belongs properly with the others in this book (and with Caspar Hauser and my novel Davies). In it I have put together four figures, in an underworld, and let them interconnect. Much of my poetics, it seems to me, consists in placing things oddly side by side. Still not so oddly as life does.'

Farewell My Lovely

Farewell My Lovely

Polly Clark's haunting new collection is about leaving one's life and returning a stranger. In poems which are moving and often darkly comic, she explores the ways in which we try to hang on to what we were, and the ways in which we accept that everything we were certain of has gone forever. Farewell My Lovely is a book of transformation in many voices, from riffs on popular songs to a modern reworking of Magnificat or Mary's Song. Polly Clark's vivid and unswerving gaze is applied with the same intensity to a dream of childhood, the vulnerability of a new species of bird or the fragility of marriage, creating a powerful collection about the price of survival.

The Time of Their Lives

The Time of Their Lives

Without inhibition, more than 120 of the most notable heads of houses, editors and publishers of this time shared many never-before told stories about how the most important books in postwar America came into being, and are still being read ...

The golden age of book publishing, Al Silverman informs us with utter certainty, began in 1946 and lasted into the late 1970s and early 1980s. In his intimate history of those years, Silverman sets out to prove this sweeping conceit by relying on the eyes and ears and memories of the men and women who were there creating that history. Without inhibition, more than 120 of the most notable heads of houses, editors and publishers of this time shared many never-before told stories about how the most important books in postwar America came into being, and are still being read today. In The Time of Their Lives we learn how … -- Robert Gottlieb worked with Joseph Heller to make Catch-18, as it was then called, into the world renowned Catch-22… -- Corlies “Cork” Smith took a risk on a shy young man he had never heard of, Thomas Pynchon, after being absorbed by one of his earliest short stories … -- Leona Nevler edited under delicate working conditions with a most difficult author, to make Peyton Place a novel for all generations. It was Arthur Thornhill, Sr., in his years as president of Little, Brown’s grand publishing house who said about the occupation he loved, “I wanted to be part of something that was good,” his word for publishing in the golden age. In this fascinating and elegiac history, Al Silverman illuminates a period in publishing that was not only good, but formed a distinguishing landmark of culture in American life -- a golden time that certainly deserves a new life.
