Some people try and can't. Other people try and really shouldn't. Inua Ellams does.
This collection is beautiful, simple as.
The pictures he creates comibined with the wordplay and underlying sensibility of the writing yield something that you feel lucky to have read.
Having seen Inua perform several times and been taken away with the imagery I'm delighted at how well his work translates to the page.
Basically it's just damn good. If you like beautiful pictures and gorgeous wordplay then you need this.
You need this.
