    James Tate

    Tate’s poems are about the world we inhabit, our wrecked, vexed love for it. Existence is at times absurd but properly observed and considered that absurdity reveals, often with laughter, the something else by which we live.

  • Citizen

    £9.99

    Citizen

    Claudia Rankine’s book recounts mounting racial aggressions in ongoing encounters in 21st century daily life and in the media. The accumulative stresses come to bear on a person’s ability to speak, perform and stay alive. Our addressability is tied to the state of our belonging, Rankine argues, as are our assumptions and expectations of citizenship. In essays, images, and poetry, ‘Citizen’ is a powerful testament to the individual and collective effects of racism in our contemporary, ‘post-race’ society.
