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.
Frederic Raphael

    Praise for Pippa Little  'Richly imagined, wide-ranging and subtly musical, Overwintering is a most welcome collection.'
    Sean O'Brien
    'There's a quiet courage here. Meaning dwells in the clear images of sense-perception but transcends them too. The real is fleet, elusive: but when it earths itself in this world, it is decidedly womanly. There's an unexpected laughter, rueful, sly. This poetry will hold.'
    Gillian Allnutt
