John navigates the Bookshop’s poetry section like a seasoned mariner (though he often runs aground on J.H. Prynne). He’s also a poet in his own right: his first collection, Antler, won an Eric Gregory award, and his second will be published by Carcanet. When he’s not conducting séances in the basement, he mans the Bookshop Twitter account.
Ask John about: poetry, natural history, crime, his personal rankings of Mr Kipling cakes.
