The year is 1925, and Arthur Shelby is a retired man. Padding around his garden, baby son under one arm, he's collecting fresh eggs. He's Vito Corleone in the tomato plants. He's Tony Soprano on the fishing boat. He's not thinking about killing he's thinking about opening a garage. "I like fixing cars," he says, wistful in the mid-morning sun. He looks a little different, too. The famous, 'harsh-as gun-butt-to-the-cranium' crop has gone in favour of a bucolic bard centre parting.
"I don't want to speak out of turn," says Jack O'Connell, hunched forward in a grey hoodie and a baseball cap, neatly working his way through a fish pie. "But I'll tell you a story about Jeff Daniels. The first time we met, we were doing a cast photo on the side of a hill and I was positioned just in front of him. Suddenly, I was getting tugged around and pulled off balance from behind."
Debut collections jostle with works by household names on this year's TS Eliot prize shortlist, one of the country's premier poetry awards. Simon Armitage is the best-known writer on the list, nominated for his translation of a 15th-century poem The Death of King Arthur. Also hoping to win is Sean Borodale, whose 'documentary poems' are written on location. His first collection, Bee Journal, was chosen by Armitage himself as one of the books of 2011 in the Guardian.
Muck Rack makes it simple to find people, tweets, or articles that mention any name, keyword, company, hashtag etc. We've compiled this guide to help you make the most of your search.
Selecting a term
Start searching tweets, articles from media outlets, articles mentioned in tweets, journalists'
names, titles and bios with some suggested searches:
Companies or Topics (e.g. iPhone, Microsoft)
Phrases (e.g. "cloud computing") — use quotes to keep the terms together
Twitter handles (e.g. @username) — returns those who have mentioned or replied to
Names (e.g. "David Pogue")
Hashtags (e.g. #sxsw, #london2012)
Bio details (e.g. vegan, Olympics, father)
Muck Rack's Advanced Search allows for many boolean operators.
Find results that mention multiple specified terms, use AND or
+. For example, ensure each result contains both Elon Musk and Mark Zuckerberg by
searching Musk AND Zuckerberg or Musk + Zuckerberg.
Use the operators OR or , to broaden your search when you'd like either of
multiple terms to appear in results. (This is the default behavior of our search when no operators
are used). For example, results will contain either cake or cookie by searching cake OR cookie or cake,cookie
Use NOT or - to subtract results from your search. For
example, searching Disney will yield results about the Walt Disney Company as well as Walt Disney
World Resort. To exclude mentions of Disney World, search for Disney -World or Disney
When using one of these operators with a phrase, enclose it in quotation marks. For example, you can
find results about smartphones excluding Apple's iPhone 4S by searching smartphone -"iPhone
Exact case matching or punctuation
If you're searching for a brand name or keyword that relies on specific punctuation marks or capitalization, you can
find results that match your exact query by adding matchcase: before the keyword you're searching for, like matchcase:E*TRADE .
Use parentheses to separate multiple
boolean phrases. For example, to find journalists talking about having fun in Disney World or
Disneyland, search for ("disney world" OR disneyland) AND fun.
An asterisk can be used to search for any variation of a root word truncated by the asterisk. For example, searching for admin* will return results for administrator, administration, administer, administered, etc.
A near operator is an AND operator where you can control the distance between the words. You can vary the distance the near operation uses by adding a forward slash and number (between 0-99) such as strawberries NEAR/10 "whipped cream", which means the strawberries must exist within 10 words of "whipped cream".
