Bloodshot Monochrome

by Patience Agbabi
£8.99   paperback  Canongate Books Ltd (2008)

Bloodshot Monochrome by Patience Agbabi Bloodshot Monochrome is a glorious, poetic take on all things black, white and read.
 
Reinventing the sonnet, Patience Agbabi shines her euphoric, musical lines on everything from growing up to growing old, from Northern Soul to contract killers, from the retro to the brand new.
 
Whether resurrecting the dead in 'Problem Pages', playing out noir dramas in 'Vicious Circle', or capturing moments of her own life in perfect shapshot, Agbabi's verse is sublimely lyrical and spiked with gleeful humour.
