There is no mention Notebooks in today's print edition of The Guardian


Quote:
(Performance poet Kate Tempest follows up her Ted Hughes-prize-winning Brand New Ancients, an hour-long "spoken story" with orchestral backing, with a new, and as yet untitled, work (Picador). Michael Longley, who is 75 this year, has had a career of rare consistency of quality. His new collection is The Stairwell(Cape)


The on-line edition reads:


Quote:
Performance poet Kate Tempest follows up her Ted Hughes-prize-winning Brand New Ancients, an hour-long "spoken story" with orchestral backing, with a new, and as yet untitled, work (Picador). Clive James's translation of Dante has been shortlisted for the Costa prize. He gives some of his thinking about poetry in his Notebooks (Picador). Michael Longley, who is 75 this year, has had a career of rare consistency of quality. His new collection is The Stairwell (Cape).


As I cannot at present see any reference to Notebooks on the Picador site, I cannot say which edition of The Guardian is correct. However, for reasons that will probably be obvious to readers of Clive's most recent essays, I suggest that the The Guardian's online edition is correct, and that mention of the collection was sub-edited out because he or she did not have enough column inches available to include it.
