Torque Press Relaunch

This from Piers Hugill, regarding the relaunch of Torque Press:

I am very happy to be able to announce the re-launch of Torque Press, a small press dedicated to publishing contemporary poetry, which is supported by the University of Southampton. It has been a long time coming, but together with the news about the press we are also very pleased to announce the launch of a new book by Caroline Bergvall, Cropper, beautifully designed and constructed by Marit Münzburg, which in two articulating sections considers the experience of multilingualism, and the way bodies and language(s) interact across their many borders.

We are also now making available for purchase (while stocks last) the backlist of Torque Press, which published ten titles between 1984 and 1997. These are (with the number in the sequence and date of publication given in parentheses):
