So it’s a bonus when, having been more or less forgotten by the author, a book comes back into print, relaunched, with a new title and cover and new hope. OK, you know what’s coming next. Ten years ago I was a poetry animal 24/7: I edited Poetry Review, wrote reviews, compiled anthologies. Then I made the change and am now a full-on popular science creature. But, in a pleasant blast from the past – more zephyr with a hint of spring – one of the anthologies is about to re-enter the world of print (also on ebook).
The Picador Book of Wedding Poems is published on January 5. It was first published in 2004 and I had forgotten what many of my choices had been. It came up fresh for so I hope it might work for others too.
