5.0 out of 5 stars Funky, fabulous looks at life! 25 April 2010
Format:Paperback
Only recently discovered by me (through Monty Don's series on crafts), I bought three volumes of Zephaniah's poetry and devoured it one afternoon. I am so impressed and keep returning to it. If you don't already know his work, please try some - you are in for a huge treat!
