Adam Foulds The Broken Word | 07-Jan-09

Adam Foulds' first poetry collection is a verse novel about the Mau Mau uprising in 1950s Kenya, seen through the eyes of an English public schoolboy.

"The Broken Word is a moving and pitiless depiction of the world as it is rather than as we might like it to be, and the terrible things we do to defend our place in it." David Wheatley, The Guardian

Foulds has been awarded the Sunday Times Young Writer of the Year for his debut novel The Truth About These Strange Tiimes and has won the Costa Poetry Award 2008 for The Broken Word.
