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
A peachy sunsetTaken from 'The Windows of Graceland'...
over a line of black fir trees,
fires all over our field.
I am there in shorts and sandals
running with a can of petrol
to revive the drooping flames,
my father’s solid body
standing still among the blazes
like a Roman General,
just here, this evening
like a king.
