Overheard In A Tower Block

Poems

By Joseph Coelho
Illustrated by Kate Milner

Award-winning poet Joseph Coelho’s astonishing new collection is a powerful and moving poetic narrative about growing up in the city.

'Gazing at the stars from five storeys up,
smelling the bins from five storeys below.
Overheard arguments,
overheard laughter.'

A disappearing father and a Mermaid-Queen mother; statues that sing for flesh and blood; bullies who kick you under the table; perfect red trainers – and the things that lurk in the library….

"Joseph Coelho is a notable newcomer, touching on subjects ranging from the hungry mouth of a communal chute bin, devouring the disappointments of its residents, to mythical transgressions."
