Poet's Pub, Paperback / softback Book


Poet's Pub is the classic comic novel by Eric Linklater, set in an English pub.

When an Oxford poet named Saturday Keith assumes control of the Pelican Pub, what he desires most is the peace and freedom to craft his poems without being disturbed.

To his dismay, however, the local watering hole soon becomes an attraction for various eccentric characters ranging from uncouth rogues to members of academia.

Comprised of an entertaining series of vignettes that occur at the Pelican Pub in the fictional Downish, Poet's Pub is a humourous collection of stories by award-winner Eric Linklater.

Includes a new introduction by Nancy Pearl.
