Share[s] folklore, songs and a richness of world views with a vivacity that heightens their collective call to protect the planet's linguistic, and cultural, ecosystem * Financial Times * Thrilling - and moving too. The cumulative effect is a celebration of the brotherhood of peoples. Grandparents, home, grief, fear, pride, anger - all this and more is yet another reminder that 'this place', the world, is indeed 'beautiful' and it's only the passionate sharing of thoughts and feelings that can keep it that way. * Daily Mail *


Author Information

Chris McCabe works as the National Poetry Librarian at the Southbank Centre and launched the Endangered Poetry Project in 2017, a major project to collect poetry written in the world's disappearing languages. His work crosses artforms and genres including fiction, non-fiction, drama and visual art. He was shortlisted for the Ted Hughes Award in 2013 and his five collections of poetry include Speculatrix (2014), which was commended in the Forward Prize, and The Triumph of Cancer (2018), which is a Poetry Book Society Recommendation. His first novel, Dedalus, a sequel to Ulysses, (2018) was shortlisted for the 2019 Republic of Consciousness Prize, and his work has been described by The Guardian as 'an impressively inventive survey of English in the 21st Century'.
