‘The Shipwrecked House’ by Claire Trevien is one of the eleven short-listed titles for this now prestigious award, finalists to be announced on November 28th. The book was published in March 2013, a paperback at £8.99.
The book is quite short but average for poetry publishing, containing forty-four poems, one of which was highly commended in the 2013 Forward Prize. The title is taken from her late grandmother’s house in Brittany. Claire. I will cross my fingers for Claire and look forward to putting a review on this site soon.
