Books Info:

After Pusan free pdf "After Pusan", first published in 1995, is the third panel (alongside Blindfold Games and Coastwise Lights, also in Faber Finds) of a triptych of memoirs by Alan Ross. Inspired by Ross' visit in 1986 to the South Korean coastal city of Pusan, like its predecessors it gracefully entwines poetry and prose. ""After Pusan" opens with a thirty-page prose memoir of [Ross's] visit, economically and self-effacingly told, deft in its detail and tireless in its curiosity...This memoir is more than merely an adjunct to Ross' other travel writings, though, and more than only a prelude to the poems which fill the rest of these hundred pages. "After Pusan" breaks a long silence in his life as a poet- and it was that visit to Korea...that suggested to him 'that if poetry was ever going to come again it might do so now." ("PN Review").

About Alan Ross

Alan Ross (1922-2001) was a poet, writer, journalist, editor and publisher. In fact, he was a man of letters par excellence. Born in India, educated in England, he joined the Royal Navy in the Second World War and endured the Arctic convoys to Russia. Alan Ross took over The London Magazine (the definite article was later dropped) from John Lehmann and revitalized it. There, it has been said, 'he simplified as well as unified contemporary culture by the clarity of his unique editorial taste. He also discovered many new talents.' His writing embraced poetry, cricket journalism, biography, autobiography, criticism and travel writing. Many of his titles are to be reissued in Faber Finds.
