Quote of the Day
...where the usual publisher's list might be like the contents of a bookshop, Carcanet's was like the contents of a private library. More than that, over the years, the Carcanet list has grown without any dilution of seriousness, so that looking at it now is like being invited to read the contents of a poet's library.

    One of the most significant poetic achievements of our time, John Ashbery's Self-Portrait in a Convex Mirror was awarded the Pulitzer Prize, the National Book Award and the National Book Critics' Circle Award upon its publication in 1976.
