Description

Their books have been translated into eleven languages and published to critical acclaim around the world. Questions of integrity - hence the prime number of the title - are addressed in direct, affecting terms: how can we be true to ourselves while under constant pressure to conform? Ruminative, wise, with a newer, more contemplative and metaphysical note running through, it is a book engaged with the big questions and the emotional states in which we live and create. Infused with all of their rich lyrical skill and unforgettable imagery, Tempest's bravura collection mines themes of transformation, identity and reaction against conformity with unparalleled insight and verve. Featuring a vibrant rainbow design, and our super-sized Q logo, you won't find a more stylish way to make a statement.

The Loop" was the standout, and the final poem, a "Love Song" dedicated to the LGBT+ community was a powerful and beautiful way to close the collection. I enjoy their poems the most when they tell a story, more than when they “just” describe a feeling or situation. Taking its bearings – and title – from the prime number, Divisible by Itself and One is concerned, ultimately, with integrity: how to live in honest relationship with oneself and others.

They received Mercury Music Prize nominations for both of the albums Everybody Down and Let Them Eat Chaos , and two Ivor Novello nominations for their song-writing on The Book of Traps and Lessons .

Stories of transformation hold a central place in Tempest's work, their best to date; here, the poet considers the changes that are sometimes required to be oneself. We don’t share your credit card details with third-party sellers, and we don’t sell your information to others. Even in cases where the poem itself didn't touch me as much as others, it still had a melodic flow that made it very enjoyable to read. Everyone needs to hear and feel the raw sometimes, and these collections always manage the reflection without the melancholy - more stating as a fact but without burying the pain purposefully deep or out of reach. There were some great and lovely poems in this collection and Tempest's rhythm and feeling for language is amazing.
