Thanks are due to the editors of the following, in which several of these poems first appeared, sometimes in earlier versions: Ambit, The Compass, The High Window, New Statesman, PN Review, Poetry Review, The Times Literary Supplement and Wild Court. I am also grateful to Alan Jenkins, Anjna Chouhan, Nicholas Friedman and William Ivory for providing feedback, and to my editor, Michael Schmidt, and Andrew Latimer at Carcanet. The quotations in ‘Operation Mondscheinsonate at Coventry Transport Museum’, some of which have been slightly altered, are from Ron Vice, We Reinvented the Wheel (Dunlop Aerospace Limited, 2003). The four poems concerning Dr Bob Pintle are warmly dedicated to Dr Andrew Taylor, who did not inspire them.
