He is a broadcaster and literary journalist, with a weekly column on fiction for the Guardian newspaper.

`The 'Lives of the Poets', combining mournfully droll biography with brilliant literary criticism, is as enjoyable as anything he wrote, yet has long been unavailable outside academic libraries or second-hand bookshops.' John Mullan, Saturday Guardian
