Paperback / softback
Gazing at the stars from five storeys up,smelling the bins from five storeys below.
Overheard arguments,overheard laughter. A disappearing father and a Mermaid-Queen mother; statues that sing for flesh and blood; bullies who kick you under the table; perfect red trainers â€“ and the things that lurk in the libraryâ€¦. Award-winning poet Joseph Coelhoâ€™s astonishing new collection is a powerful and moving poetic narrative about growing up in the city.
