    In this debut collection, Antrobus explores different aspects of his identity, particularly being d/Deaf and being Jamaican-British. This book also delves into Deaf history, and looks at relationships between fathers and sons. I particularly admired Antrobus's focus on Deaf women in hi...

    I think it's difficult to rate poetry collections but I did enjoy this, it had a few really good poems that were amazing and a few that were just okay. Interested to see where the discussion at uni with this will go. ...

    This is an upcoming title I was lucky enough to get an early copy of. This is a brilliant collection, discussing the multiple facets of identity, such as race (the author is of mixed heritage, English and Jamaican), disability, gender etc, and the isolation those identities can/do brin...

    I saw Raymond Antrobus live a few weeks ago, and he?s amazing! I know I?ve read books with deaf characters before, but I don?t think I?ve read much poetry. One thing that really stood out to me in this collection was how much it draws on current affairs. I had no idea bout some...

    It should be no surprise that a d/Deaf poet conjures a powerful sound world. The resonance of these poems oscillates between the voices of Antrobus' family - Jamacain patois, British market stall - his father's sound system tinkering and his own experinces of language and miscommunicat...

    Antrobus's poetry is clear and affecting, all the more because he deals with inaudibility and misunderstanding. The warmth in the voice though, and the anger (at Ted Hughes, at Alexander Graham Bell, at Dickens) that so much hurt and untold difficulty was forced on D/deaf children thro...

    As someone who generally doesn't get along with poetry, I found this to be a lovely collection. My favourites are 'Jamaican British', 'Doctor Marigold Re-evaluated', and 'Two Guns in the Sky for Daniel Harris'. ...

    Beautiful and varied. Also, a quick read with a very easy flow. The poems about deafness were, in my opinion, the most interesting. Favourite poems: The 'Samantha' sequence, I Move Through London like a Hotep, After Reading 'Deaf School' by the Mississipi River, Dementia. ...

    Review forthcoming! ...

    Poetry collectio from a British-Jamaican poet on language, communication, fathers, and the d/Deaf experience that was very much my cup of tea. ...

    I saw Raymond Antrobus live a few weeks ago, and he?s amazing! I know I?ve read books with deaf characters before, but I don?t think I?ve read much poetry. One thing that really stood out to me in this collection was how much it draws on current affairs. I had no idea bout some...

    It should be no surprise that a d/Deaf poet conjures a powerful sound world. The resonance of these poems oscillates between the voices of Antrobus' family - Jamacain patois, British market stall - his father's sound system tinkering and his own experinces of language and miscommunicat...

    Antrobus's poetry is clear and affecting, all the more because he deals with inaudibility and misunderstanding. The warmth in the voice though, and the anger (at Ted Hughes, at Alexander Graham Bell, at Dickens) that so much hurt and untold difficulty was forced on D/deaf children thro...

    As someone who generally doesn't get along with poetry, I found this to be a lovely collection. My favourites are 'Jamaican British', 'Doctor Marigold Re-evaluated', and 'Two Guns in the Sky for Daniel Harris'. ...

    Beautiful and varied. Also, a quick read with a very easy flow. The poems about deafness were, in my opinion, the most interesting. Favourite poems: The 'Samantha' sequence, I Move Through London like a Hotep, After Reading 'Deaf School' by the Mississipi River, Dementia. ...

    Review forthcoming! ...

    Poetry collectio from a British-Jamaican poet on language, communication, fathers, and the d/Deaf experience that was very much my cup of tea. ...

    some profound stuff in there ...

    REVIEW FORTHCOMING ...

    Really enjoyed this poetry collection about the d/Deaf experience of a young black man in London. Showed me my ignorance and immersed me in his unique perspective. ...

    In this debut collection, Antrobus explores different aspects of his identity, particularly being d/Deaf and being Jamaican-British. This book also delves into Deaf history, and looks at relationships between fathers and sons. I particularly admired Antrobus's focus on Deaf women in hi...

    I think it's difficult to rate poetry collections but I did enjoy this, it had a few really good poems that were amazing and a few that were just okay. Interested to see where the discussion at uni with this will go. ...

    This is an upcoming title I was lucky enough to get an early copy of. This is a brilliant collection, discussing the multiple facets of identity, such as race (the author is of mixed heritage, English and Jamaican), disability, gender etc, and the isolation those identities can/do brin...

    I saw Raymond Antrobus live a few weeks ago, and he?s amazing! I know I?ve read books with deaf characters before, but I don?t think I?ve read much poetry. One thing that really stood out to me in this collection was how much it draws on current affairs. I had no idea bout some...

    It should be no surprise that a d/Deaf poet conjures a powerful sound world. The resonance of these poems oscillates between the voices of Antrobus' family - Jamacain patois, British market stall - his father's sound system tinkering and his own experinces of language and miscommunicat...

    Antrobus's poetry is clear and affecting, all the more because he deals with inaudibility and misunderstanding. The warmth in the voice though, and the anger (at Ted Hughes, at Alexander Graham Bell, at Dickens) that so much hurt and untold difficulty was forced on D/deaf children thro...

    As someone who generally doesn't get along with poetry, I found this to be a lovely collection. My favourites are 'Jamaican British', 'Doctor Marigold Re-evaluated', and 'Two Guns in the Sky for Daniel Harris'. ...

    Beautiful and varied. Also, a quick read with a very easy flow. The poems about deafness were, in my opinion, the most interesting. Favourite poems: The 'Samantha' sequence, I Move Through London like a Hotep, After Reading 'Deaf School' by the Mississipi River, Dementia. ...

    Review forthcoming! ...

    Poetry collectio from a British-Jamaican poet on language, communication, fathers, and the d/Deaf experience that was very much my cup of tea. ...

    some profound stuff in there ...

    REVIEW FORTHCOMING ...

    Really enjoyed this poetry collection about the d/Deaf experience of a young black man in London. Showed me my ignorance and immersed me in his unique perspective. ...
