This sums up this book for me.
Oh my word. What an incredible read. I hadn‘t intended to start 2020 with consecutive memoirs, but I am so glad I did.
I was lucky enough to see Lemn Sissay read from & talk about this book at the Ubud Readers & Writers Festival last October. When I finally got my hands on a copy this week I had to bump it up the #tbr list.
A quick, page-turning, gut wrenching read about Lemn‘s life ‘in care‘ in the UK. So good, so bloody good. What a man 😍👏.
