by Lemn Sissay
£9.99   paperback  Canongate Books (1999)

Morning Breaks in the Elevator by Lemn Sissay This is a twist of Lemn. There is no smokescreen, no flim-flam or slim-slam. Morning Breaks in the Elevator is Lemn's first book in eight years. In the intervening time, besides being a featured artist on the multi-million selling album Leftism, besides having his poetry laid into the streets of Manchester, besides having the BBC do a documentary about his life, besides presenting Jazz 606 on BBC 2, besides writing plays and reading around the world from Cameroon to Singapore, from Portugal to Paris, besides all this - and there is much, much more - he has found Gold from the Stone. This is the reason his Morning Breaks in the Elevator. Read on.

"Fierce, funny, serious, satirical, streetwise and tender."
