Benjamin Zephaniah can be very hit and miss, and I’m afraid to say that I think he missed with this particular collection of poetry, although not for lack of trying. His commitment to experimentation with both English and Jamaican Patois is to be commended, as is his support of environmentalism and veganism, but I wasn’t too impressed with this.
It’s a shame, because the edition that I own was signed by Benjamin Zephaniah himself! Too bad…
