The White Review February Book Group: A Place to Stop by Susan Wicks (Salt)

The White Review is pleased to announce our book choice for February: A Place to Stop by Susan Wicks, published by Salt. Although perhaps better known as a writer and translator of poetry, in her latest novel Susan Wicks proves that she is also a novelist of extraordinary talent. A Place to Stop follows the intersecting stories of a group of villagers in South West France and is (we thought) particularly remarkable for its acuity and lightness of touch. We hope that you enjoy A Place to Stop and as always, we encourage you to get in touch via email (isabel [at] thewhitereview.org), Twitter (@thewhitereview) or Facebook to let us know what you thought.

Salt’s origins date back to 1990 when poet John Kinsella launched Salt Magazine in Western Australia. The journal rapidly developed an international reputation as a leading publisher of new poetry and poetics and over the next decade went on to develop Folio(Salt), publishing and co-publishing works focused on a pluralist vision of contemporary poetry which extended across national boundaries and a wide range of poetic practices; a vision which is still upheld in the books it publishes today.

In 1999 it became Salt Publishing and in 2002 was relaunched in the UK. Since that time Salt has rapidly expanded its size and the range of the publishing programme. From its offices in Cambridge, Salt now publishes over 80 books a year, focussing on poetry, biography, critical companions, essays, literary criticism and text books by authors from the US, the UK, Australia, New Zealand, Canada, the Caribbean and mainland Europe.
