From the publisher:
Beneath the surface we are all connected . . . Award-winning poet, rapper and storyteller Kae Tempest’s first work of non-fiction: a meditation on the power of creative connection ‘Powerful and merciful.’ Ali Smith ‘Tempest . . . doesn’t just leap off the page, but leaps into your throat and demands to be shouted all the way out.’ Marlon James ‘[Kae’s] language hits like lightning. It illuminates and it burns.’ Guardian Drawing on twenty years’ experience as a writer and performer, Kae Tempest explores how and why creativity – however we choose to practise it – can cultivate greater self-awareness and help us establish a deeper relationship to ourselves and the world. Personal, hopeful and written with piercing clarity, On Connection is a call to arms that speaks to a universal yet intimate truth.
