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.

(Pub. Sep 2004)
A striking performer of her own poems, Ros Barber has the gift of recreating her voice – and the voices of others – on the page. The poems in this debut collection demonstrate her wide range in form and subject and her skill in highlighting the extraordinary within the commonplace. With their leavening of dark humour and their formal dexterity, her poems charm, entertain and provoke.
'an honest, unflinching and hugely satisfying debut'
