Jackie Kay discusses what connects us, and laments what divides us.

Jackie Kay’s first collection as Scottish Makar is a book about the fighting spirit – one that Jackie argues we need now more than ever. Bantam crosses borders, from Rannoch Moor to the Somme, from Brexit to Bronte country. Who are we? Who might we want to be? These are poems that sing of what connects us, and lament what divides us; poems that send daylight into the dark that threatens to overwhelm us – and could not be more necessary to the times in which we live.
