The ABPress website (or how to change a light bulb in a tight space with one hand tied)

The web page of the ABPress based in Oxford and Sibiu, soon open for business: muses and misspells on its books. Randomly decrepit, stiff joints, possibly neo-bankrupt: so out of touch it needs help, but so analogue it cannot be helped. Nonetheless temperamentally enthusiastic, moderately irascible.

”Even when he was writing prose in his role as jazz critic, Philip Larkin was unable to stop himself being poetic. Peter J. King has produced a remix, a recomposition, of the poet’s words, yet never losing sight of his personal enthusiasms, his dislike of musical modernism, and his nostalgia for times past. These are a set of pithy observational pieces that shed new and different shards of light on their subject.” – ALYN SHIPTON
