Christopher Reid has won the Costa Prize, outright, for his book of elegies, A Scattering.
I’m the riddle to an answer: I’m an unmarried spouse, a flesh-and-blood revenant, my own ghost, inhabitant of an empty house.
Ghosts don’t come more companionable than Christopher’s work, from which I have derived such pleasure these many years now. He’s not so bad in person either, and I salute him on his entirely deserved triumph, with much pleasure and fondness.
