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.

     'Sometimes you read a work that is so clearly deserving of the accolades it's received that it restores your faith in things. Sasha Dugdale'€™s 'Joy' is such a work.'
    The Poetry School


    '...a beguiling and unusual debut, its best poems at once elusive, satisfying and likely to go on being read.'
    Sean O'Brien, Times Literary Supplement
    'Addictive writing, compelling and tender.'
    Malika Booker 
     My favourite collection this year is Sasha Digdale's 'Red House' (Carcanet Oxford Poets). I like how she has infused her British sensibility with the passion and abandon of Russian poets like Anna Akhmatova and Marina Tssvetaeva, whom she has previously translated.
    Kathryn Maris, Timeout Magazine Best of 2011
    'The sensibility The Estate reveals is intelligent and wry - as well as highly original'
    Fiona Sampson, Tower Poetry
    'Notebook is a beguiling and unusual debut, its best poems at once elusive, satisfying and likely to go on being read.'
    Times Literary Supplement
