Caroline Carver excited the press when she won the National in 1998 with a poem about killing a shark.   Before she was identified, there was wild speculation that she was a young black Rasta poet.   A white middle-aged woman, me, turned up to collect the award.   I've done lots of writing since then, in all sorts of voices, but it's still the West Indian joy of my childhood that drives me to the best places.
