Kiran Millwood Hargrave was born in London in 1990. The British Shakespeare Assocation commissioned her first pamphlet Scavengers. Her poetry and short stories have been selected to feature in publications such as The New Writer, Aviary, The Forest Book of Bedtime Stories and Orbis. Last March was produced in collaboration with the Scott Polar Research Institute to mark the centenary of Captain Scott's final expedition to the South Pole. This astonishing collection transports the reader to the 'last place without men' - a place that, for all our civilisation, we can still be rubbed to 'knuckles' by the extremity of the weather, the isolation. And though the poems are rooted in history, there is a chilling message here for the future: 'that water, with seeping insouciance, really can unmake stone'.
