Earn Your Milk and win your salt

Chris at Salt Publishing asks what Salt books people would recommend and why. Well, I'd recommend Tom Raworth's Earn Your Milk: Collected Prose, for no other reason (and is there a better one?) than I'm reading it at the moment and really enjoying it. The bulk of the book is a piece called A Serial Biography. It's a series of ambiguously linked paragraphs telling a bunch of narratives and apparently mixing fiction and non-fiction... Pretty much any way I describe it undersells the reality, which is funny and gripping and provocative and clever.

And now you have an extra reason to go and buy it because Salt are running a summer raffle - every time you buy a book from their online shop before the end of August you'll be entered for a chance to win the next 20 books they publish. Hurray! If you don't fancy the Raworth there's always a billion others to choose from. The Corner of Arundel Lane and Charles Street is still available!
