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.
