Clever Backbone, Paperback

Clever Backbone Paperback


John Agard has been broadening the canvas of British poetry for the past 30 years with his mischievous, satirical fables.

In "Clever Backbone", the Guyanese-born word magician plays havoc with biology and makes a monkey out of Darwinian evolution - on the occasion of the bicentenary of Charles Darwin's birth and the 150th anniversary of the publication of his "Origin of Species".

His "Alternative Anthem: Selected Poems" (with DVD) is published at the same time.
