Tom Pickard is many things, poet, opera librettist, filmmaker, social historian and, in his teens, a co-founder of the legendary Newcastle, England Morden Tower reading series that coaxed Basil Bunting back to writing poetry, his masterpiece Briggflatts was the result.
In this book Tom is an autobiographer. More Pricks Than Prizes is a thriller in which Basil Bunting appears. This is the sort of book a small press lives to publish, at least Pressed Wafer does.
Michael Russem did the design.
