Summary

Poems about growing up and living in cities and urban environments.

'Gazing at the stars from five storeys up,
smelling the bins from five storeys below.
Overheard arguments, overheard laughter.'

A disappearing father and a Mermaid-Queen mother; statues that sing for flesh and blood; bullies who kick you under the table; perfect red trainers and the things that lurk in the library.

Award-winning poet Joseph Coelho's astonishing new collection is a powerful and moving poetic narrative about growing up in the city.
