The First Collection
A lyrically bardic first collection from accomplished poet, Sarah Lipton-Sidibeh. Spanning the ages across Britain's colonial landscape, Sidibeh explores not only the body, but the body politic. With unflinching intimacy, Sidibeh illustrates the vagaries of ageing and loving in a body caught by endless possibilities and boundaries.
Through the same critical eyes, she undresses Britain's colonial past and criminal present, laying bare society's ills and inequities. A comprehensive collection of humanity's collective struggles and radiant joys, The First Collection is an ambitious accomplishment.
