Fiere

unavailable
Read by the author, Jackie Kay.

A deeply moving and searching enquiry into all forms of human friendship, Fiere is a brilliant collection of poems by Jackie Kay, as well as a lyric counterpart to her memoir, Red Dust Road: the extraordinary story of the search for her Nigerian and Highland birth-parents.


Fiere – Scots for ‘companion, friend, equal’ – is a vivid description of the many paths our lives take, and of how those journeys are made meaningful by our companions on the road: lovers, friends, parents, children, mentors – as well as all the remarkable and chance acquaintances we would not otherwise have made. Written with Kay’s trademark wit and flair, and infused with both Scots and Igbo speech, it is also a fascinating account of the formation of a self-identity – and the discovery of a tongue that best honours it.

Musical and moving, funny and profound, Fiere is Jackie Kay’s most accomplished, assured and ambitious collection of poems to date.
