The Guardian considers Carcanet Press titles some of 2016’s best


The Guardian Best Books 2016

As the calendar year draws to a close, media outlets are collecting their 2016 entertainment favorites. The Guardian, with a US online readership of more than 40 million people per month, has recently released a handful of literary lists—and a few of IPG’s Academic & Professional titles have already been given a nod! It’s an honor to be included in any roundup with recommendations from writers the likes of Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie, Teju Cole, Kazuo Ishiguro, Otessa Mosfegh, and Jonathan Franzen. Congratulations to these authors and their extraordinary publisher, Carcanet Press!



The Met Office Advises Caution

Advises Caution

(9781784102722)

The Met Office Advises Caution by Rebecca Watts, featured in the Guardian’s Best Books of 2016 (part one)

“Humour, philosophy, feminism, and the natural world […] Rebecca Watts’ debut collection has them fitting together perfectly.”

With this debut, Watts reinvigorates the tradition of English nature poetry for a 21st century audience. These poems approach their often-unusual subjects with the clarity and matter-of-factness of Simon Armitage and a wit that recalls U. A. Fanthorpe, Dorothy Parker, and Stevie Smith—finding new ways to negotiate the complex territory of our physical and emotion worlds.



Measures of Expatriation
Measures of Expatriation
(9781784101688)

Measures of Expatriation by Vahni Capildeo, featured in the Guardian’s Best Books of 2016 (part two) 

“[A] long searching look at dislocation and plurality and polyvocality and diasporas […] a very singular and powerful collection.”

A Trinidadian-British poet and Rhodes scholar, Vahni Capildeo and her poems invite us to experience the emotional challenges of separation—from people or from one’s motherland.

Iraq + 100
(9781905583669)

Iraq + 100 edited by Hassan Blasim, featured in the Guardian’s Best Science Fiction and Fantasy Books of 2016

"Ten homegrown writers [...] imagine what their country might look like in the year 2103, with fascinating results.”

In 2016, American and European audiences have finally begun to wake up to the excellence and diversity of genre voices from around the world. This anthology was created by Iraqi writers asked to consider what their home cities might look exactly 100 years after the disastrous American and British-led invasion. In addition to reimagining the politics of the present, this volume amplifies the perspectives of contemporary Arabic writers with unique takes on science fiction and fantasy.
