    The Perseverance

    * Winner of the Rathbones Folio Prize 2019 * Winner of the Ted Hughes Award 2018* Shortlisted for the Jhalak Prize * 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, The Perseverance operates in the in-betweens of dual heritages, of form and expression, emerging to show us what it means to exist, and to flourish.
