Waterstones Says

One of the finest performance poets out there finally gets into print with this powerhouse debut collection. Raw, honest and emotionally naked yet equally lyrical and poised, Somebody Give This Heart a Pen deftly captures modern life and its attendant issues of identity and belonging with wit and fire.

Longlisted for the The CILIP Carnegie Medal 2021

'An amazingly talented spoken word artist' - MTV

From acclaimed performance poet Sophia Thakur comes a powerful first collection of poems exploring issues of identity, difference, faith, relationships, fear, loss and joy. Intricate, evocative and dazzling - these are poems that explore the experiences that connect people; they encourage readers to look within and explore the tendencies of the heart.
