Polyphonic in it's mingling of registers and with an omnivorous approach to poetry's formal heritage, Backra Man confronts the topics of race, class and history in fresh and unexpected ways. Protean and ebullient, this debut ranges confidently from the delightfully and deliberately graceless to the coolly satisfying, taking in some streetwise dialect along the way" (Shearsman magazine).
