Peter Carpenter & Lesley Ingram – Being In Bed With Philip Larkin
Saturday 05 April 2014 at 5:00pm

Peter Carpenter and Lesley Ingram

‘A fine poet of the urban pastoral’ (Matt Merrit) and ‘a
masterly portrait-painter’ (Matthew Jarvis), from the
brilliant Being in Bed with Philip Larkin and the tour-deforce
Footballing T S Eliot, Peter Carpenter’s poems
dazzle with wit and insight and move through teaching,
politics and recent history.

Lesley Ingram will be published by
Cinnamon Press next year. Her ekphrastic work is richly
imaginative and evocative.
