Christopher Hampton

It is just a year to the day since the death of the poet and political historian Christopher Hampton – a good time to take a moment and reflect on his life and work.  Christopher had so many virtues that are lacking in the push-and-shove of the modern world: he was courteous but quietly determined, he listened as well as he spoke and he used language with a careful precision that one wishes were more widespread.

I am happy to say that a collection of Christopher’s poems, some unpublished at the time of his death and some selected from his previously published works, has been edited by Christopher’s daughter Rebecca and his friend Patsy Fraser.  The book, with a foreword by Dinah Livingstone, will be published in time for the Salon du Livre (16-17 June).  Full details will be available shortly.  Advance orders are more than welcome

I am a secondhand and antiquarian bookseller living in France. I have a bookshop in the Cité de l'Ecrit, Montmorillon, near Poitiers. I also sell books on-line through my own website and through various open sites like Abe books, Amazon and Biblio.
