Benjamin Zephaniah is mostly famous for his work as a poet and as a children’s author, but in this book he shows that there’s much more to him than that. Effectively, it’s a collection of travel writing which talks about Benjamin’s time in China, where he pursued his love of kung fu and trained with Shaolin monks.
It’s a fantastic little read, well-written and highly engaging, and possibly one of my favourite Benjamin Zephaniah books so far. Even if you’ve never read any of his work then I suggest you check this out, because it really is fantastic, and fascinating too.
