breathe[s] new life into old classic forms . . . a long poem about us and the gods that's all high-kicking verve and long-range understanding. I loved its vision, powerful and merciful. (Ali Smith, Books of the Year Observer)
Winner of the Ted Hughes Prize for innovation in poetry, Kate Tempest's Brand New Ancients plays with mythology to tell the story of young people in modern times as their lives spiral out of control.See all Product description

It took a bit of adjusting to Kate's voice, but its a helluva story - really poignant in places, and a bit upsetting at the climax. The lady knows human nature, and is compassionate with our flaws and hurts.
I like her insights into modern urban life, and applying that epic vibe ("the Gods are in the toilets having unprotected sex"... I wasn't expecting that lyric!) is pretty much a stroke of genius.
I got this and a 'Slam poetry' audio CD at the same time, and its been a brilliant combination of the ancient and the modern. Very educational.
Highly, highly recommended.
A Ted Hughes award, Mercury prize shortlist, and all by the time she's twenty-eight. Whither now for our Kate? I can't wait to find out. She's already my hero.
