Blackwell’s is delighted to bring together three Carcanet poets with a Scottish connection for an evening of poetry and reflection on all that Carcanet has achieved. The event will be chaired by Robyn Marsack, who is also the editor of Fifty Fifty: Carcanet’s Jubilee in Letters, which celebrates half a century of publishing by one of the UK’s most resilient and distinctive independent presses, through correspondence between fifty authors and their editor.
Frank Kuppner was born in Glasgow in 1951. This is his eleventh Carcanet collection. The first, A Bad Day for the Sung Dynasty, was awarded a Scottish Arts Council Book award in 1984. Second Best Moments in Chinese History received the same award in 1997. A novelist as well as a poet, he received the McVitie’s Prize for his fiction in 1995. He has been Writer in Residence at the universities of Edinburgh, Strathclyde and Glasgow.
