Majid Sits in a Tree and Sings
Majid Sits in a Tree and Sings is a pamphlet of contrary people waiting to whisper in your ear – mothers, children, those who want to tell a secret or explain something before it’s too late, those who don’t quite fit and those who don’t want to. Characters such as Majid, a young boy who loves his mother, encourage us to see the same things repeatedly and to see them differently each time.
This is a pamphlet of poems which shine and crackle with their own dark electricity. Finely wrought, precise and wide ranging in their themes, they carry a pleasing shiver of wildness in their hearts. – Liz Berry
