About this book
Nagra is at the forefront of a new generation of English poets, and the title poem of this collection won the Forward Prize for the best single poem in 2004.
Explores the idealism and reality of a multicultural Britain. The author, 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.
