Frustratingly, I can't get hold of a review copy of Alice Quinn's Edgar Allan Poe & The Juke-Box (uncollected poems, drafts and fragments by the American poet Elizabeth Bishop) published by Farrar, Straus and Giroux for love nor money!

You'll recall, that there has been much fuss about the book recently (mostly due to Helen Vendler's comments which our very own Michael Schmidt rejected in his editorial for PN Review no.169) so I am very keen to read and review it.

Never mind: the good folk at Bloodaxe have sent on their Elizabeth Bishop: Poet of the Periphery, which you'll note is one of my Books of the Week (along with Douglas Oliver's Arrondissements), which looks like it will quench my Bishop thirst just for now.
