Quote of the Day
Carcanet Press is our most courageous publisher. When you look at what they have brought out since their beginnings, it makes so many other houses seem timid or merely predictable.

    Praise for Cliff Ashcroft 'A superb book...who else has written so movingly about an absent presence in these times?'
    Peter Redgrave (on Faithful)
    'The Anthology's most consistently impressive poet...simple, natural vocabulary and a careful, level tone (which) reminds us that small objects contain infinite possibilities.'
