The Perseverance by Raymond Antrobus


Reviewed by bookseller Grace:

“This is the only poetry book I’ve ever sat down and read cover to cover. The depth of feeling in his work takes your breath away, and several of the pieces really struck me on a very personal level. Truly beautiful and heartfelt. What more can be said?”

An extraordinary debut from a young British-Jamaican poet, ‘The Perseverance’ is a book of loss, language, and praise. One of the most crucial new voices to emerge from Britain, Raymond Antrobus explores the d/Deaf experience, the death of his father and the failure to communicate. Ranging across history, time zones and continents, this book operates in the in betweens – of dual heritages, of form and expression – emerging to show us what it means to exist, and to flourish.
