Winner of the Costa Book of the Year 2010 and Winner of the the Costa Poetry Award 2010.
Costa Book Awards 2010 Judges' comment: "A cutting-edge collection about surviving breast cancer but believing that hope, humanity and imagination matter even more. Playful, unflinching and utterly generous."
“We were captivated by the poetry in this special, original, compassionate, uplifting and accessible book that readers will go back to again and again.”
Of Mutability by Jo Shapcott
Jo Shapcott's award-winning first three collections, gathered in Her Book: Poems 1988-1998, revealed her to be a writer of ingenuous, politically acute and provocative poetry, and rightly earned her a reputation as one of the most original and daring voices of her generation. In Of Mutability, Shapcott is found writing at her most memorable and bold. In a series of poems that explore the nature of change - in the body and the natural world, and in the shifting relationships between people - these poems look freshly but squarely at mortality. By turns grave and playful, arresting and witty, the poems in Of Mutability celebrate each waking moment as though it might be the last, and in so doing restore wonder to the to the smallest of encounters.
