LET THE LIGHT POUR IN is a new collection from LEMN SISSAY, one of the best and most beloved British poets of our time. His verse has appeared widely across Radio 4, BBC TV and broadsheet media. For the past decade Lemn Sissay has composed a short poem as dawn breaks each morning. Life affirming, witty and full of wonder, these poems chronicle his own battle with the dark and are fuelled by resilience and defiant joy. His memoir, “My Name is Why?” was a number one times bestseller. He is British and Ethiopian.
