Synopsis: The moving, expansive, and dazzling second collection from award-winning poet Kayo Chingonyi.
Kayo Chingonyi’s remarkable second collection follows the course of a ‘blood condition’ as it finds its way to deeply personal grounds. From the banks of the Zambezi river to London and Leeds, these poems speak to how distance and time, nations and history, can collapse within a body.
With astonishing lyricism and musicality, this is a story of multiple inheritances — of grief and survival, renewal and the painful process of letting go — and a hymn to the people and places that run in our blood.
