Longlisted for the Baillie Gifford Prize

With both the epigrammatic concision and conversational cadence of his poetry and novels, Kei Miller explores the silence in which so many important things are kept and challenges us to interrogate what seems unsayable and why – our actions, defence mechanisms, imaginations and interactions – and those of the world around us.

Through letters to James Baldwin, encounters with Liam Neeson, Soca, Carnival, family secrets, love affairs, white women’s tears, questions of aesthetics and more, Miller powerfully and imaginatively recounts everyday acts of racism and prejudice.
