I could not be held responsible
he could not be held at all
Tracking the joys and pains of the path through addiction, and wrestling with desire, inheritance and faith, Calling a Wolf a Wolf is the darkly sumptuous debut from award-winning poet Kaveh Akbar. These are powerful, intimate poems of thirst: for alcohol, for other bodies, for knowledge and for life.
Kaveh appeared at one of our Verve Specials at Waterstones Birmingham in 2018 reading alongside local poets Cynthia Miller and Romalyn Ante. It was a truly memorable and inspiring event.
