About this product
- DescriptionTaking in its sights Matthew Arld's 'land of dreams', the collection explores the idealism and reality of a multicultural Britain with wit, intelligence and small sense of mischief. Nagra, whose own parents came to England from the Punjab in the 1950s, conjures a jazzed hybrid language to tell stories of aspiration, assimilation, alienation and love, from a stowaway's first footprint on Dover beach to the disenchantment of subsequent generations. By turns realist and romantic, these charged and challenging poems never shy from confrontation, but remain, always, touched by a humorous zeal and an appetite for living.
- Author BiographyDaljit Nagra was born and raised in West London, then Sheffield, and currently lives in Willesden where he works in a secondary school. 'Look We Have Coming to Dover!' won the Forward Prize for Best Individual Poem 2004.
