We've just learned that Elyse Fenton has won the prestigious Dylan Thomas prize for her book Clamor. Clamor, which was written in part while Fenton’s husband was deployed as a medic in Baghdad, is the first book of poetry ever to have won the title. She is the third person to have picked up the award, following Australian Nam Le with The Boat in 2008 and Welsh Rachel Trezise with Fresh Apples in 2006.
