Schist


Price: £7.5

Selected by Carol Ann Duffy for the 2019 Laureate's Choice Collection

 

Schist is the lovechild of emotion and geology, the product of a childhood with a schizophrenic mother and an anorexic father on a council estate in Croydon. These poems travel to where the land gives way to the sea and family stability is eroded by illness and death.

 

Brimming with healthy risk-taking and lit with tenderness, the scope and variety of Smith's writing is invigorating, fusing scientific imagery with playful phrase-making

– John McCullough
