Great Regulars: When Kathleen Jamie's first collection

of essays, Findings, came out in 2005, no one--least of all its author--was expecting anything much. Fresh from winning the 2004 Forward prize for The Tree House, a collection described by the chair of judges, Lavinia Greenlaw, as "a book which enlarges . . . the scope and capacity of poetry being written today", Jamie was riding high. But success in one arena was no guarantee of success in another--and Findings was, by anyone's standards, a fiendishly tricky sell.
