My new book of poems: Acapulco: New and Selected Poems, officially published on 23rd April, is now available to order on line from Melos Press at £10.  I will now hand you over to the Melos blurb:-

New and Selected Poems
Nicholas Murray
Nicholas Murray was born in Liverpool and now lives in
Wales and London. He has written critically acclaimed
biographies of Bruce Chatwin, Matthew Arnold,
Andrew Marvell, Aldous Huxley, and Franz Kafka.
He has also published two novels, A Short Book about Love,
and Remembering Carmen, and books on Victorian travellers, Liverpool and Bloomsbury. 
He runs the poetry imprint Rack Press and is a Fellow of the Welsh Academy.
Acupulco contains nearly thirty new poems and work drawn
from the earlier collections, Plausible Fictions and The
Narrators. It concludes with the full text of Get Real!
a powerful verse satire on the coalition Government
which was performed by the Iris Theatre Company
at St Paul's Covent Garden in 2011.
Praise for Nicholas Murray's poetry:
“From the opening lines of 'Landscapes' we are in the
company of a voice that quietly but compellingly makes
itself heard... Throughout these poems, shadows, absences,
and possibilities stalk the tyranny of mere fact...”
David Wheatley, Thumbscrew
“Precise and rather mysterious poems” 
John Fuller
“...his clear sense of internal rhythm and strong feeling
for the well-honed phrase”
 Sarah Crown, The Guardian
