Here are September’s goodies, which I’ve already started on, given the lateness of my August postings… Interesting that all but one are from last year (not a conscious choice).
Lavinia Greenlaw, Minsk (Faber and Faber, 2003)
John Burnside, Gift Songs (Jonathan Cape, 2007)
Sean O’Brien, The Drowned Book (Picador, 2007) Winner of the 2007 Forward Prize
Fiona Sampson, Common Prayer (Carcanet, 2007)
