New titles Spring 2015

Agota Kristof’s The Proof & The Third Lie – completing the trilogy begun with The Notebook – was published (in one volume) in March. In May: Paulette Jonguitud’s Mildew (‘This extraordinary tale of sex and death ... Mildew, by a gifted new Latin American writer, has weight, yet is told with a lightness Calvino would have admired’ – Beverley Bie Brahic) and Matthew Siegel’s poetry Blood Work (‘The deceptive directness of Matthew Siegel’s debut is remarkable’ – Mark Doty).
Free Verse poetry book fair
Free Verse: The Poetry Book fair is an annual event initiated by CBe in 2011. The fourth book fair – organised by Chrissy Williams and Joey Connolly – took place on 6 September 2014 at the Conway Hall in London, where more than 60 poetry publishers from throughout the UK presented and sold their books and pamphlets direct to the public. The 2015 book fair will be on 26 September: more details on the Free Verse website.
