To Sweeten the Bitter is a collection by British Jamaican poet, Raymond Antrobus.
After the death of his father, Raymond returns to Jamaica but restless questions begin to unearth inside him (Who I am now is something I need to remember).
Upon returning to the UK Raymond travelled to Bristol, Liverpool, Hastings, Hull and around London to meditate in the places where the pain and grief of history is bigger than his own.
Raymond appeared at the first two Verve Festivals as part of a wonderful OutSpoken Press Showcase event.
