About The Book
*Shortlisted for the Costa Poetry Prize 2017*
*Selected as a 2017 Book of the Year in the Guardian and Daily Telegraph*
‘Urban and urbane, it’s a magnificent debut’ Daily Telegraph
‘A brilliant debut — a tender, nostalgic and at times darkly hilarious exploration of black boyhood, masculinity and grief — from one of my favourite writers’ — Warsan Shire
Translating as ‘initiation’, kumukanda is the name given to the rites a young boy from the Luvale tribe must pass through before he is considered a man. The poems of Kayo Chingonyi’s remarkable debut explore this passage: between two worlds, ancestral and contemporary; between the living and the dead; between the gulf of who he is and how he is perceived.
Underpinned by a love of music, language and literature, here is a powerful exploration of race, identity and masculinity, celebrating what it means to be British and not British, all at once.
