Join us to celebrate the launch of Mick Imlah: Selected Prose.

The volume, edited by André Naffis-Sahely and Robert Selby and prefaced by Professor Mark Ford, draws together a selection of the late poet’s liveliest and most illuminating essays on his literary predecessors and fellow writers.

Alan Hollinghurst and Lindsay Duguid will talk about Mick and his work, and copies of the book will be available for purchase.

Mick Imlah was born in 1956 and educated at Magdalen College, Oxford, where he taught as a junior lecturer. He was editor of Poetry Review from 1983 to 1986, Chatto and Windus poetry editor from 1989 to 1993, and worked at the Times Literary Supplement for many years until his death in 2009. His second collection of poetry, The Lost Leader, won the Forward Prize in 2008.
