Take that! You... you... winner

AN Wilson is not at all impressed with Szirtes's TS Eliot Prize-winning book. In a somewhat snide article, Reel is picked apart at first and savaged at the last. While it's admirable, in my estimation, to call any attention to Geoffrey Hill (whom Wilson seems to think should win everything... okay, I can't disagree), the whole exercise seems somewhat small-minded to me. But then, this IS how Brits have at one another.

Thanks, George. You know we're big fans. You should all buy George's book as well as Kathryn's. (Use the links in the hearsay on the front page, though. Then bookninja gets a cut from Amazon.)

Thank you so much, Bookninja, I do hear. And to confirm that Kathryn Gray is very good and indeed very nice and that she will win many prizes in the future, not 'never' or indeed 'never never'.

George Szirtes takes the £10,000 for his book Reel. Ninjas everywhere are shattered that Kathryn Gray's The Never-Never didn't win. Next book. Do you hear us, George Szirtes!? NNEEEXT BOOOOK! (Actually, Szirtes is really really good.)

Surprise! You're famous!

First time poet, Kathryn Gray, expresses delight at being nominated for the TS Eliot prize. No shit.

"It gives me that confidence, and encourages you, as poetry is a very very difficult pursuit - you can get no acknowledgement and often very little money!"

That's half right. I get no acknowledgement AND no money. (This woman looks so much like a member of my family that I am seriously reconsidering the importance of the Welsh roots in my celtic genetic soup.)

More on Paterson

"Many of the poems in his new collection Landing Light seem to involve transitions, crossings and borders - and the changes people undergo in their journeying." Noooooo!

Perhaps a bouquet would assuage your aggrieved sense of diction?

Pet peeve alert: people who misuse the word "anthology" when they mean "collection". Arrrgghhh!!
