Media Review – Inside the Wave

Poet and novelist Helen Dunmore died in June 2017 from cancer, just after publishing what turned out to be her final collection of poems, called Inside The Wave. The collection won the Costa Poetry prize and was then voted the Costa Book of the Year for 2017. She was only the second posthumous winner in the literary prize’s history.

Anne reads one of the poems from the collection ‘My Life’s stem was cut’ and you can hear that and what the rest of the smallVOICE team make of the book at about 4’50 minutes in to the podcast.
