  • Polly Atkin’s startlingly original second collection Much With Body is a Poetry Book Society Winter Recommendation. Inspired by her home the Lake District, the book has a watery feel. Nature and our relationship to it features strongly. There is also a distinct link with the past in a central section of found poems taken from transcripts of the journals of Dorothy Wordsworth. Available now

  • Oxford, city of dreaming spires, bicycles, Inspector Morse, tourists, gentility. Or perhaps a less familiar place? Having lived and worked there for thirty years, Patrick McGuinness brings an intimate knowledge to this new exploration of the city. He reflects on the familiar and introduces us to the unnoticed, to create a new way of looking at Oxford. Available now.

  • The highly anticipated second collection by Kim Moore
  • Drawing on a long tradition of storytelling Hammad Rind’s debut novel Four Dervishes skewers issues like religious bigotry, injustice, the denial of women’s rights, and class division in a lavishly inventive, verbally rich, exotic confection, that is both darkly thematic and humorously playful. Available now

    “Easily the most remarkable work of fiction to come out of Wales in a thousand moons.” – Jon Gower

    Hammad Rind’s remarkable debut is a must-read
