Shortlisted for Forward Prize for Best First Collection 2019 Winner of the Ted Hughes Award for New Work in Poetry Jay Bernard s extraordinary debut is a fearlessly original exploration of the black British archive an enquiry into the New Cross Fire of 1981, a house fire at a birthday party in south London in which thirteen young black people were killed.Dubbed the New Cross Massacre , the fire was initially believed to be a racist attack, and the indifference with which the tragedy was met by the state triggered a new era of race relations in Britain.Tracing a line from New Cross to the towers of blood of the Grenfell fire, this urgent collection speaks with, in and of the voices of the past, brought back by the incantation of dancehall rhythms and the music of Jamaican patois, to form a living presence in the absence of justice.A ground breaking work of excavation, memory and activism both political and personal, witness and documentary Surge shines a much needed light on an unacknowledged chapter in British history, one that powerfully resonates in our present moment.
