Published to coincide with the release of the film Bright Star, written and directed by Oscar Winner Jane Campion (The Piano, In the Cut), starring Abbie Cornish (Elizabeth: The Golden Age) and Ben Whishaw (Brideshead Revisited, Perfume) John Keats died aged just twenty-five. He left behind some of the most exquisite and moving verse and love letters ever written, inspired by his great love for Fanny Brawne. Although they knew each other for just a few short years and spent a great deal of that time apart - separated by Keats' worsening illness, which forced a move abroad - Keats wrote again and again about and to his love, right until his very last poem, called simply 'To Fanny'. She, in turn, would wear the ring he had given her until her death. So Bright and Delicate is the passionate, heartrending story of this tragic affair, told through the private notes and public art of a great poet.

*A BEST BOOK OF 2021 IN THE TIMES* The epitaph John Keats composed for his own gravestone - 'Here lies one whose name was writ in water' - seemingly damned him to oblivion. When he died at the age of twenty-five, having taken a battering from the conservative press, few critics imagined he would be considered one of the great English poets two hundred years later, though he himself had an inkling. In this brief life, Lucasta Miller takes Keats's best-known poems - the ones you are most likely to have read - and excavates their backstories. In doing so, she resurrects the real Keats: a lower-middle-class outsider from a tragic and dysfunctional family, whose extraordinary energy and love of language allowed him to pummel his way into the heart of English literature; a freethinker and a liberal at a time of repression; a human being who delighted in the sensation of the moment; but a complex individual, not the ethereal figure of his posthumous myth. Combining close-up readings of his writings with the story of his brief but teeming existence, Lucasta Miller shows us how Keats made his poetry, and explains why it retains its vertiginous originality and continues to speak to us across the generations.

Still Single should be a marital status all of its own. Single girls today are smarter, stronger and funnier, and journalist Alison Taylor is the witty voice for this new generation who are looking for ‘the one’ but not willing to undergo a personality lobotomy in the process. Covering twelve months in the life of one ever-hopeful (but never desperate) romantic, The Still Single Papers charts what happens before a date, during a date and when there are no dates. Hanging out at music festivals, bars and various capital cities, we join the self-styled ‘lovefool’ and friends on her quest for fun, romance and someone to care about. On her travels, Alison asks the tough questions, like: what does that text really mean? Did you shave that yourself? Are you f***ing kidding me? The Still Single Papers will ring true with a whole generation of cool, educated and ambitious women who can’t quite believe that there are so few fit, single straight guys out there. But that doesn’t stop them from looking and hoping, and hoping and looking . . .
