Poetry in Guardian First Book Award shorlist

‘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.
