Unexpectedly I received in the post today a package of six copies of the new paperback edition of The Corner of Arundel Lane and Charles Street. It says on the front that the book was shortlisted for the Aldeburgh First Collection Prize and the Portico Prize. It's currently selling for £7.99, postage free, at the Salt website. And, as we've recently established, it would make an ace Chrimbo present. Jolly poems, post-free, in a bendy sheath: what more could you ask?
