A Full Cone collects the poems Miles Champion has written since the publication of How to Laugh (Adventures in Poetry, 2014).
Carcanet published Champion's first book, Compositional Bonbons Placate, in 1996, and he edited As When, a selection of Tom Raworth's work spanning fifty years, for Carcanet in 2015.
Raworth described Champion as a poet who `uses just the necessary words, and puts them in interesting places'.
Of How to Laugh, William Fuller writes: `There is an intelligence to these [poems] that creates a texture unlike any other: always alert, always attentive, always capable.' And John Wilkinson: `These poems are all inviting, and it seems to me that's an amazingly rare quality in poems, and even this old Brit submits to the pleasure they give.' He describes that pleasure as `radiance'. A Full Cone is entirely clog resistant and allows for both inbound and outbound connections in a variety of droplet sizes.
