Quote of the Day
Carcanet has always been the place to look for considerations of purely literary and intellectual merit. Its list relies on the vision and the faith and the energy of people who care about books, and values. It is thus as rare as it is invaluable.

Poem of the Day
Mach two the green sign glows;Taken from 'New Poetries V'...
You’re far behind
Fifty thousand feet shows.
And far below.
Crew start dinner service,
We ate hours back,
Ask ‘Scotch, soda, claret?’
Our voices low.
Gladly I’d have missed this plane,
Had you but asked,
To run with you again at dawn
Hyde Park’s pale rose lined paths.
