Quote:

The Shore to Shore tour – in celebration of  independent bookshops – starts in Falmouth on 19 June and will end in St Andrews on 2 July........
 
.....To coincide with the tour Picador are publishing and anthology of newly commissioned poems about bookshops, some of which are published for the first time here today.
 
Clive James
 
Apotheosis at the Signing Table
 
Looking ahead for places to sit down
Come spring I might, one last time, limp downtown
And into Heffers, into Waterstones,
In either order, haul my creaking bones
To stand, with a long-practised half-lost look,
Somewhere beside the stack of my new book
Until I'm asked to sign.............................
.....................

 
The whole poem is available in the print edition of The Guardian

or  

Off The Shelf: A. Celebration of Bookshops in Verse will be available exclusively from independent bookshops for a three month period.
