The moving, expansive, and dazzling second collection from award-winning poet Kayo ChingonyiA Blood Condition tells a story of inheritance - the people, places, cultures and memories that form us. Kayo Chingonyi explores how distance and time, nations and a century's history, can collapse within a body; our past continuous in our present. From London, Leeds, and The North East to the banks of the Zambezi river, these poems consider change and permanence, grief and joy, the painful ongoing process of letting go, with remarkable music and clarity. Praise for Kumukanda: 'Chingonyi's poems are full of questions that need asking. His gift is for pushing poems further than you expected them to go' Observer 'Kayo's poetry is beautiful, thoughtful, musical and nostalgic' Nikesh Shukla
