Lemn Sissay’s My Name Is Why tells the story of his childhood: one of neglect and determination, misfortune and hope, cruelty and triumph. Written with the lyricism and power you would expect from one of the nation’s best-loved poets, the memoir has received rich critical acclaim, with The Guardian praising it as ‘searing and unforgettable.’ Lemn talks about and reads from his book, and reflects on race, family, Britishness and the redemptive power of creativity.
