Summary

In this prize-winning poetry collection, we watch as the cartographer, used to assuming control over a place by mapping it, is gradually compelled to recognise a wholly different understanding of place as he tries to map his way to the rastaman’s eternal city of Zion.

As the book unfolds, the cartographer learns that every place name comes freighted with history, and not every place that can be named can be found.

Fantastic! Beautiful! Vital!

I can't praise the poet's words and performance highly enough. Kei Miller casts a magical spell. Listen to his music and be carried away.
