P. Inman’s Written 1976-2013 is published today by if p then q. The book is available for £20 and good postage rates are available both in the UK, USA and other locations.

The volume offers an incredible introduction and reappraisal of the work of one of the twentieth and twenty first century’s most outstanding poets. It includes the collections: Platin, Ocker, Uneven Development, Think of One, Red Shift, Criss Cross, Vel, at. least., amounts. to., Ad Finitum and Per Se in ‘final’ versions, as well as a number of other previously uncollected poems.

The volume also includes a sumptuous, lengthy essay by Craig Dworkin covering Inman’s career to date.

Without a doubt it is essential reading.

This is what Michael Golston has to say about the collection:

The collected P. Inman! It’s about time—and a lot of other words—many of which have never been seen or heard before. Inman’s half-century project of the complete dérèglement de tous la langue marks one of the endpoints of the great arc of American poetry, where the bow bends all the way to touch the ground. You’ll find a pot of linguistic gold there: Written is writing written at the limits of written writing. Accompanied by Craig Dworkin’s fantastic introductory essay, this book is sure to become a classic in the ongoing history of the avant-garde.

If Inman’s words are fascinating for their tonal possibilities—and are often just as exciting as musical gestures—there is a feeling that they exist always on the verge of rational meaning. Douglas Messerli
