I spy another award for Gross...

Poet Philip Gross has won the English-language Wales Book of the Year prize. 'I Spy Pinhole Eye', a collaborative work with photographer Simon Denison, explores the act of seeing and interpretation and is centred around altered images of electricity pylons. Gross is joined by John Davies, who was the recipient of Welsh-language award for 'Cymru: Y 100 lle i'w gweld cyn marw', translated as, 'Wales: 100 places to see before dying'. The £10,000 award comes only months after Gross exploded onto the scene by scooping the T.S. Eliot prize, for a different collection.
