    As well as many of those listed by yourself, I’m also looking forward to Roddy Lumsden’s Terrific Melancholy, and a clutch of interesting Fabers: Basil Bunting’s Complete Poems (editor Don Share), Mark Ford’s Six Children, Alice Oswald’s Memorial and Christopher Reid’s Selected Poems. Faber have also just published August Kleinzahler’s Sleeping it Off in Rapid City, which is an essential read.

    Don’t miss a first book from Kate Potts (Pure Hustle, Bloodaxe). Another Salt first collection from James Goodman (Claytown) is very good too. The Best British book will now be a little later than expected (June) due to the Spring mags and journals just beginning to appear now.

    You’re being kept busy, Roddy. Thanks for these titles.

    Any recommendations from the States?

    Hi, can I also recommend Jackie Kay’s ‘Fiere’ (Picador) for it is absolutely beautiful as well as Craig Raine’s ‘How Snow Falls’. I know they’ve both been out for a while but they are both fabulous.
