Poet goes viral

Great to see the poet Dean Atta getting the recognition he deserves with a piece in today’s Guardian.
I met Dean in London last year when he performed Shadow Boxer, his poem inspired by my novel Flip, at a launch event for Walker Books’ new teenage and young adult website, Undercover Reads.
Nice guy. Terrific poet.

And here’s a link to my earlier blog which reproduces Shadow Boxer.
