The Broken Word

A collection of poems by


"A first-class, word-perfect, brilliant debut."
Craig Raine

An extraordinary poetic sequence that animates and illuminates the Mau Mau uprising in Kenya in the 1950s, eventually becoming a meditation on the inheritance of conflict and its consequences. It is a thrillingly original, profound and lyrical work.
