Manchester Literature Festival: Leo Boix, Kayo Chingonyi & Andrew McMillan
- Fri 15 Oct 2021
- 6:30 pm
Three brilliant contemporary Vintage poets showcase work from their excellent new collections which all explore themes of grief, lineage, and love.
Latinx poet Leo Boix’s Ballad of a Happy Immigrant travels from Buenos Aires to Merseyside to London, focusing on queer experience, family, displacement, and the sea.
Kayo Chingonyi’s A Blood Condition tracks an illness along its human trajectory, but also finds joy in music and dancing.
While Andrew McMillan’s third collection, Pandemonium, considers the vulnerability and fierceness in caring for a loved one, death, bodies and how solace can be found in the garden.
