(1984- ) UK poet and author whose first novel, The End We Start From (2017), sets an intimate story involving childbirth and childcare in straitened circumstances against an increasingly intrusive Near Future backdrop. The protagonist mother's waters breaking, and the rapid flooding of London as systems collapse due to Climate Change, are metaphorically joined with some efficiency. The young mother eventually escapes through a post-Cosy Catastrophe landscape to a Scottish Island. [JC]
