Bloodshot Monochrome is a glorious poetic take on all things, black, white and read.

Reinventing the sonnet, Patrience Agbabi shines her euphoric, musical lines on everything from growing up to growing old, from Northerne Soul to contract killers, from the retro to the brand new. Whether resurrecting the dead in ‘Problem Pages’, playing out noir dramas in ‘Vicious Circle’, or capturin moments of her own life in perfect snapshot, Agbabi’s verse is sublimely lyrical and spiked with gleeful humour.

Praise for Transformatrix:

‘Thrilling. Has a multi-dimensional richness. It’s a bold, brassy work.’ – Independent on Sunday

‘Draws on rap, jive and disco rhythms as much as the formal subtleties of free verse. Agbabi is a fine poet, and her linguistic wit carries satirical fire.’ – Daily Telegraph

‘A tour de force in neo-formalism. Creates the right kind of tension that the best poems need – the sense of something waiting to explode’ – Poetry Review

‘Combines cutting satire and outright celebration.’ – Big Issue
