Congratulations to Carol Ann Duffy, Poet Laureate, who it has just been announced has won the Costa Poetry Prize for her latest collection “The Bees”.
A couple of years ago I had the pleasure of driving Carol Ann around Lancaster and Morecambe whilst on her visit to Lancaster Litfest. On the way we stopped for fish and chips in Morecambe’s West End and had a wonderful conversation about music, television, cinema and in particular about the nature of successful double acts. At which point of course, I couldn’t resist getting a shot of Carol Ann by Eric’s statue.
