Under the Clock, 2012

This was taken at Clock House Station, London, UK.

Under The Clock  is a book of poetry by Tony Harrison. It was published in 2005 as part of the Penguin 70s series (celebrating 70 years of Penguin Books) and was Pocket Penguin 38. Most of the books in the series were extracts from larger works, but Harrison’s was a collection of new works. You can learn more about Tony Harrison here.

Nikki used to work for Penguin, so we got the whole series as a box-set at a knockdown price, and raced each other to read the lot. To my shame I cannot remember that many of them, and this title is among the forgotten. Having skim-read it, I can see why. Great title though.

In our house, the book can be found: sitting room, right-hand bookshelves, first shelf down.

My usual thanks to John and Deanne, who got me titling good. Gargantuan thanks to Deanne for  tag ideas etc (and for bitter-sweet and brilliant posts every day). And also to Richard at CK Ponderings for being a super-cool collaborator. A round-up of our last 5 collaborations can be found on Richard’s blog. Please check it out!
