The winner of this year’s COSTA prize for poetry, J.O. Morgan lives on a small farm in the Scottish Borders. 

Assurances begins in the 1950s during a period of vigilance and dread in the middle of the Cold War: the long stand-off between nuclear powers, where the only defence was the threat of mutually assured destruction.

Using a mix of versed and unversed passages, Morgan places moments of calm reflection alongside the tensions inherent in guarding against such a permanent threat in a war-poem about the nuclear stalemate which is both historic and frighteningly topical.
Chaired by Jim Carruth, Poet Laureate for Glasgow
