Family Album

Hurry - Only 3 left in stock!
"Family Album" is preoccupied with migration, journeys and places. In poems full of energy and life, Sheree Mack catches the complexity of family history - 'it was already there waiting for me' - the pull of the past and the threads that have formed her identity. These poems evoke images of sea journeys made from Barbados and Trinidad to England - 'a place speckled / with a few brown faces' - and onward travel to Bradford and Newburn beside the Tyne. Sheree Mack's collection captures a sense of the migrations and changes of the last century, and shares with us, through the control and patterning of her poetry, an experience and insight that is her own.
