"Lemn Sissay is a passionate and powerful voice whose performances are humbling and exhilarating" (Kate Tempest)

"One of the most original, challenging poets writing in Britain today, and his extraordinary, heart-breaking, courageous life story is the stuff of legend . . . The collection showcases his breadth, his passion, his anger and his humanity . . . Full of light and hope . . . A prodigious talent" (Daily Mail, Poetry of the Year)

"A tremendous selection of his poetry . . . His gift as a writer - of plays, poetry, documentaries - is for turning life's base metal into gold" (Observer)

"This volume of selected and new poems traces [Sissay's] path from gifted adolescent to accomplished poetic voice, railing with passion and prowess against the "quiet violence of the day-to-day"" (Financial Times)

"Hugely enjoyable, inventive, funny and touching" (Guardian)

"A literary institution" (Big Issue)

"A lyrical genius" (The Voice)

"His name is magic, his poems are songs on the street" (Independent)
