Three generations, four poets and one shared passion. Peter, Merry, Wandia and Subira make up a family of wordsmiths, forging and sculpting the written and spoken word. This unusual anthology is a tribute to Peter Cross (1920-2010) who passed on the joy of writing poetry to his daughter and her children. Within these pages you will encounter an eclectic assortment of beauty, wisdom, fury and fun, from the grief of wartime loss, to long-distance love, glimpses of East Africa and up-to-date rage against racism and disablism. A poetic family resemblance is made up by a childlike playfulness, fierce political minds and linguistic dexterity. This book is an intimate welcome into a family of poets, inviting you to hear their history, and feel their presence and unique perspectives, to sit at their kitchen table in lively conversation.

MEDIA REVIEWS
"This intriguing collection shows how poetry can flow through a family, passed from one generation to the next to mould it for its own circumstances and challenges. From her father's traditional poetic style, through her own less formal, contemplative verse, to her offspring's biting declarations of their rights and freedoms, Merry Cross has brought together a collection which uses different styles to record different experiences but which sits together beautifully." Janine Booth
