BETWEEN CUP AND LIP


Miami University Press is pleased to announce the publication of Peter

Manson's Between Cup and Lip.


Between Cup and Lip, Peter Manson's first American book publication,

contains 18 years of previously uncollected work. The book forms the

missing link between two collections published in Britain, For the

Good of Liars (Barque, 2006) and Adjunct: An Undigest (Edinburgh

Review, 2005), demonstrating the continuum between the

prosodically–dense, endlessly considered poetry of the former and the

procedural work of the latter. Manson has taught at Cambridge

University and other institutions. He lives in Glasgow, where he edits

the small press Object Permanence.


"'Ah more eh…oh oh'. In the light of Faraday's candle Coleridge

channels Loewenhoek and Whalen (I was thinking) as Peter Manson shakes

the frayed carpet of culture and, as a fearless Duprat caddis fly

larva, makes jewels from the motes. Even the bits of themselves the

poems create make interesting shadows. 'Groups of words which didn't

describe the image but which were it'. Yes. Wit, intelligence, a

dispassionate view of self: plus images that are not words. Nothing to

want for in this excellent book that moved my chitin heart."

—Tom Raworth


"Peter Manson is the language veterinarian, elbow-deep in the

mysterious interior of our discourse, groping intimately to clutch the

dark beauty of its palpitating offals, approaching the apparatus of

its speech-making from entirely the wrong direction. If every word was

once an animal, then every animal was harmed in the making of this

book."

—Chris Goode


There are two ways to order the book (more news about UK distribution

later).  You can order it via the Miami University Press website at

http://www.orgs.muohio.edu/mupress/details/manson_cupandlip.htm.

Click on the price ($15) and you'll be taken to the online store of

Pathway Books.  For international orders, emailpbs@pathwaybook.com

for information about shipping charges.


After the boxes land at Small Press Distribution in Berkeley—early

next week, I'd think--it will be available via SPD at

shipping options.
