The “people’s laureate” Benjamin Zephaniah is taking his autobiography on tour this spring.

“I wrote my autobiography gradually, over six years, and wanted it to be a social history of Britain,” said Zephaniah.

“They say you’re supposed to mellow with age—but I haven’t. If anything, I just seem to be getting more militant.”
