Jean Sprackland lives in London and has published four collections of poetry. Sleeping Keys, published by Cape last autumn, is “a book distinguished by rueful but unembittered wisdom” (Sean O’Brien, The Guardian). Tilt won the Costa Poetry Award in 2008, and Hard Water was shortlisted for both the TS Eliot Prize and the Whitbread Award. Jean is also the author of Strands: A Year of Discoveries of the Beach, the winner of the Portico Prize for Non Fiction.
