A Driftwood Altar: Essays and Reviews, with an Introduction by Nick Everett

One of the most innovative and exciting poets of his generation, Mark Ford is also an accomplished essayist and critic. This is his own selection from his journalism, which has appeared in the LRB, the TLS, Poetry Review, the New York Review of Books and elsewhere. Ford is at his best when investigating the eccentric fringes of the literary world, and there are pieces here on Oulipo, the madness of Marinetti, the incorrigibly morbid Thomas Lovell Beddoes and the entirely fictional Australian modernist Ern Malley.
