News at Eleven: [Rebecca] Goss was heading for Suffolk,

where she grew up and where she and her husband will make what she describes as "a complete new start" in a 17th-century cottage, close to the places she knew as a child. By chance, the move has coincided with intense literary interest in her newly finished poems about the illness and eventual loss of Ella after 18 months of life. Goss knows the unveiling of the shortlist on Monday will bring a fresh period of focus on the pain of her recent experiences. She is braced, she says.
