'We knew that black and brown bodies, working class voices, women's voices, did not have a space where they could be heard - and so this writing collective was a necessary and political act' In the early years of the new millennium, poets Malika Booker and Roger Robinson saw the need for a space for writers outside of the establishment to grow, improve, discuss and learn. One Friday night, Malika offered her Brixton kitchen table as a meeting place. And so Malika's Poetry Kitchen was born. 'Kitchen', as it became known, has ushered in a new generation of voices, launching some of the most exciting writers, books and initiatives in British poetry in the past twenty years. Today, Kitchen is a thriving writers' collective, with a wealth of talented poets and branches in Chicago and India. Too Young, Too Loud, Too Different is a celebration of Kitchen's legacy, an appreciation of its foundational spirit and a rallying cry for all writers to dream the future. The collection features breathtaking new poems by Warsan Shire, Inua Ellams, Kayo Chingonyi, Dean Atta, Roger Robinson, Malika Booker among many others.

World War I was a slaughter on an unprecedented scale. Nevertheless there was no shortage of young men willing to sacrifice themselves for their country. Some lied about their age to join up, not just at the start of the war when it was seen as a glorious adventure, but even towards the end when the true horror of the mechanized butchery was known to one and all.This book concerns the young men who were not yet twenty when they won the Victoria Cross, the British armed forces highest award for gallantry. Many perished in the action that earned them the VC. Others survived to receive the award, but then went on to die later in the war.One was as young as sixteen. Several were just eighteen, though they were supposed to be nineteen before they were allowed to serve overseas. They were sailors and airmen, as well as soldiers, and they came from Britain, Ireland, Australia, Canada, Nepal and India.Each one demonstrated an exceptional nerve and bravery. While some did survive World War I - even going on to serve in World War II - they showed an reckless indifference to death that made them Too Brave to Live, Too Young to Die.World War I has been over for nearly a hundred years now, but the tales of their valour live on. These men and their exploits deserve to be remembered - in the hope that young men will never be called on to do such things again.

The moving, expansive, and dazzling second collection from award-winning poet Kayo Chingonyi A Blood Condition tells a story of inheritance - the people, places, cultures and memories that form us. Kayo Chingonyi explores how distance and time, nations and a century's history, can collapse within a body; our past continuous in our present. From London, Leeds, and The North East to the banks of the Zambezi river, these poems consider change and permanence, grief and joy, the painful ongoing process of letting go, with remarkable music and clarity. Praise for Kumukanda: 'Chingonyi's poems are full of questions that need asking. His gift is for pushing poems further than you expected them to go' Observer 'Kayo's poetry is beautiful, thoughtful, musical and nostalgic' Nikesh Shukla 'Whether recalling his parents' deaths or celebrating the art of the mixtape, Chingonyi's poise is astonishing' Daily Telegraph

Although written as a novel the events of the Ardennes offensive have been a defining characteristic for the author’s life. He has succeeded in communicating to the reader an anti-war story which has grown out of his own experiences. The story does not remain in the simple reproduction of inhuman scenes but goes further into the realm of humane thought and rejection of the hate which accompanies war. As a result of current political events the author feels obliged, in his advanced years, to demonstrate how intertwined daily life and guilt can be. He does this in recognition of the fact that increasingly more powers in our society are trying to propel us to subtle mechanisms of violence in all aspects of our lives. The events which can occur in such an environment as the battle of the bulge demonstrate to the author both: how high human nature can rise and also how deep it can sink.

Mel P. Dread Private Eye Investigation Division Matter regarding: one ton of priceless missing gold coins. My early investigations led me to find three gold coins. The coins had been buried deep underground along with the first clues that could dramatically change my life forever. My quest to find the priceless coins led me and my new friend, Bonnie Lou Starr, to Des Moines, Iowa. In search for more clues, we visited the famous Des Moines Christian Cathedral Church and homeless shelter, where the two of us spent five nights, eating, sleeping, and pretending to be homeless. Des Moines is where my great-grandfather Melvin Porter Dread was buried. His grave was where I dug up more clues, which led me to believe I could become one of the richest twelve-year-old kids in the entire world if I found that priceless lost gold! Soon after we returned home, a story of two twelve-year-old kids from Nebraska was all over the national and local TV news. Could that be it? Maybe this case needed to be stamped closed? Then I started connecting the missing pieces in this Dread family mystery with all those clues that could only lead to one remaining question: just where did my great-grandfather hide the gold? I now have a good idea where it might have been hidden: in the very church the Dread family had built back in 1906. It is the same church my father, who believes that God does love the poor as much as the rich, still preaches in every Sunday. I know you are anxious to see how this mystery will turn out. I still believe there could be a fortune of gold coins hidden somewhere, and I have been busy doing every possible thing I can do to find them, I assure you. As luck would have it, I am unfortunately trapped and in a great amount of pain. As I lie here trying to make it through the night, I know however this story turns out, at twelve, “I am too young to die this rich!” Sincerely Mel P. Dread Does God love the rich more than he does the poor? At this tale’s end you will have laughed, you will have cried, and most of all you will have felt the joy that a good story can provide one’s soul. In the end we might reach the conclusion that the meaning of “love” is as simple as we each choose to make it!

Four-year-old Van is too young--and her grandmother is too old--for such a dangerous journey by boat, so the two have been left behind. Once settled in North America, her parents will eventually be able to sponsor them, and Van and her grandmother will fly away to safety. But in the meantime, Van is forced to work hard to satisfy her aunt and uncle, who treat her like an unwelcome servant.

Many of us have heard tragic stories of parents losing a child, but not many people could handle the abject grief of the deaths of three of their own children. Too Young To Be Angels: An Ongoing Journey of Grief is the heart-wrenching story of one mother's climb from the pits of despair, grief, and depression after the deaths of three of her four children. Author Shirley Delorbe struggles to hold on to reality when death seems to become a way of life. After her six-year-old son Randall's death in 1964 from acute trachea bronchitis, the road to recovery is long and hard. The question "Why me?" nags at Delorbe's subconscious. Her heart is only beginning to heal when her daughter Victoria's brutal murder four years later shocks the family. Almost at the breaking point, Delorbe fights simply to breathe as the death of her son Gerry in a motorcycle accident drags her back into hell a few years later. Too Young To Be Angels recounts Delorbe's journey as she struggles with the loss of each child, reveals her every thought, and shares how she eventually developed her ten steps to recovery.
