Joan Margarit is Spain's most widely acclaimed contemporary poet.  Love Is a Place includes all the poems from his three most recent Catalan collections.  His earlier work is gathered together in Tugs in the Fog: Selected Poems (Bloodaxe Books, 2006), the first English translation of his Catalan poetry and a Poetry Book Society Recommended Translation, and Strangely Happy (Bloodaxe Books, 2011). All these books were translated from Catalan by Anna Crowe.
