The latest volume in Penguin Modern Poets series - moving and unflinchingly honest poems from three different cultures
about experiences of the female body, the family, sexual politics and
conflict

Your Family, Your Body
features the work of Malika Booker, the Guyanese-British writer and
performer behind London- and Chicago-based collective Malika's Kitchen;
the Pulitzer Prize-winning Sharon Olds, one of America's most brilliant,
beloved and candid voices; and Warsan Shire, the award-winning poet and
first ever Young Poetry Laureate of London who also lent her words to
Beyonc's visual album Lemonade.

Inspired by Penguin's enormously successful '60s series of the same
name, the Penguin Modern Poets are succinct, collectible,
lovingly-assembled guides to the richness and diversity of contemporary
poetry, from the UK, America and beyond. Every volume brings together
representative selections from the work of three poets now writing,
allowing the seasoned poetry fan and the curious reader alike to
encounter our most exciting new voices.
