A refreshing talent - someone to follow,

This review is from: Breaking Silence (Paperback)
So much contemporary poetry in the UK is either obscure or over-sensitive that you can easily get the impression of a hothouse plant. Not so here: Jacob Sam-La Rose has a fresh voice and considerable technical expertise. His poems come from the streets where he grew up and I found it invigorating to read such excellent poems, full of both energy and sensitivity, from someone who has grown up with an Afro-Caribbean background. More, please.
