Written_cover_final

Inman’s Written 1976-2013 is published today by Manchester publisher if p then q. The book is available for £20 and good postage rates are available both in the UK, USA and other locations.

The volume offers an incredible introduction and reappraisal of the work of one of the twentieth and twenty first century’s most outstanding poets. It includes the collections: Platin, Ocker, Uneven Development, Think of One, Red Shift, Criss Cross, Vel, at. least., amounts. to., Ad Finitum and Per Se in ‘final’ versions, as well as a number of other previously uncollected poems.

The volume also includes a sumptuous, lengthy essay by Craig Dworkin covering Inman’s career to date.

Without a doubt it is essential reading.

This is what Michael Golston has to say about the collection:

The collected P. Inman! It’s about time—and a lot of other words—many of which have never been seen or heard before. Inman’s half-century project of the complete dérèglement de tous la langue marks one of the endpoints of the great arc of American poetry, where the bow bends all the way to touch the ground. You’ll find a pot of linguistic gold there: Written is writing written at the limits of written writing. Accompanied by Craig Dworkin’s fantastic introductory essay, this book is sure to become a classic in the ongoing history of the avant-garde.

Gareth Twose – a preview

The next Other Room takes place on August 13th at The Castle in Manchester and starts at 7pm: see the middle panel for more. Readers are Gareth Twose, Alison Gibb and M J Weller.

Here’s a preview – part nine of his sequence Top Ten Tyres Ltd published by Red Ceilings Press

9.
Did prehistoric man have bone-music discos?
Saturday night femur? The funk-fracturing
of tibia and fibula in the caves of mutually
assured destruction, musical marathons
alternating blisters and bliss in the hard minutes
that follow the clinical cosh. The ear-y discharge
of erotic heat always with a potential for disaster.
Vital that the patient keeps the leg elevated
and doesn’t let it dangle, grinding down
the debts, low and slow, with iceflame austerity.
