    1. Chris Agee Cathal Ó Searcaigh W.G. Sebald Michael Hamburger Seamus Heaney Carolyn Mullholland Nuala Ní Dhomhnaill Daniel Tobin

      Chris Agee was born in 1956 in San Francisco and grew up in Massachusetts, New York and Rhode Island He attended Harvard University and since 1979 has lived in Ireland He is the author of three books of poems, In the New Hampshire Woods The Dedalus Press, 1992 , First Light The Dedalus Press, 2003 and Next to Nothing Salt, 2009 , as well as the editor of Scar on the Stone Contemporary Poetry from Bosnia Bloodaxe, 1998, Poetry Society Recommendation , Unfinished Ireland Essays on Hubert Butler Irish Pages, 2003 and The New North Contemporary Poetry from Northern Ireland Wake Forest University Press, 2008 He is currently completing a collection of essays, Journey to Bosnia He reviews regularly for The Irish Times and is the Editor of Irish Pages, a journal of contemporary writing based at The Linen Hall Library, Belfast He holds dual Irish and American citizenship, and spends part of each year at his house near Dubrovnik, in Croatia Next to Nothing was shortlisted for the first Ted Hughes Award for New Work in Poetry, funded by the Poet Laureate and organized by the Poetry Society in London.On Next to Nothing Strong and real and thought through a masterful collection John F Deane It is a profound and exceptionally moving book I haven t read anything so powerful for a long time I was left with a sense of both the fragility and the huge importance of the here and now, as well as with an expanded sense of poetry s capacity Hugh Dunkerley Next to Nothing chronicles the years after the death of his four year old daughter, Miriam Aoife in a series of episodic, technically perfect and pitch reticent lyrics For this poet, grief crashes upon the shore of language in three distinct waves a series of brilliant couplets, a series of minimalist, impressionistic lyrics and a series of discursive, muscular stanzas The whole enterprise adds up to something beyond lyric poems a work that breaks through the barriers of literature to become something , a palliative journal, a chronicle of the heroism of lost parenthood, a handbook for the bereaved Thomas McCarthy, The Irish Times It is the most compelling book of poems I have read for years a very significant, permanent tribute to Miriam, and representation of her She joins the son who was Ben Jonson s best piece of work Bernard O Donoghue 2009 has given us some terrific poetry, but the book I will remember most from this year is Chris Agee s Next to Nothing.A profoundly personal response to the death of Agee s four year old daughter in 2001, Agee s sparse, careful, disciplined word choices unite technical brilliance with emotional intensity the work echoes with a sense of loss, but it is anything but Nothing In fact, I think, Next to Nothing bears close comparison, in both subject matter and execution, to CS Lewis s A Grief Observed.William Crawley, BBC
