Charles Boyle (poet)
In 2007, as a result of his difficulty in getting 24 for 3 published, he established CB editions, a small press dedicated to novellas, translations, and writing in other genres often neglected by mainstream publishers.
Boyle's An Overcoat: Scenes from the Afterlife of H.B., written under the pseudonym "Jack Robinson", was featured in The Guardian's Nicholas Lezard's choice column in April 2017, with Lezard concluding, "I can't think of a wittier, more engaging, stylistically audacious, attentive and generous writer working in the English language right now".
