A glorious poetic take on all things black, white, and read.

Reinventing the sonnet, Patience Agbabi shines her euphoric, musical lines on everything from growing up to growing old, from Northern Soul to contract killers, from the retro to the brand new. Whether resurrecting the dead in Problem Pages, playing out noir dramas in Vicious Circle, or capturing moments of her own life in perfect snapshot, Agbabi’s verse is sublimely lyrical and spiked with gleeful humor.
