The editor, Andrew Duncan says of this book — "The first interview dates from 1973. I took the decision to collect old interviews rather than make an all-new book. I am fascinated by the idea of a very long base line, records of one person's views over 30 years, change as part of the object recorded. Drawing on the creative input of Eric Mottram, Adrian Clarke, and Victoria Sheppard (among others) made the book more robust and embracing. The trackless wastes of the Mottram tape archive made an especial call. Those interviews were so hard to find that I want to make them easy to find. Of course there may be interviews I've missed. I've also included some explanations from Prosyncel, which is now unavailable. You can still buy Ideas on the Culture Dreamed of, though. One of the tapes in Mottram's archive is a 1978 talk at the Alembic workshop — not an interview, but a talk about the poetic process. I scarfed this up."
