Track Record: Me, Music, And The War On Blackness

George The Poet

Service95 Recommends is the home of the books we're loving and reviews from our contributors. Track Record by George The Poet explores the life of one of the UK’s much-loved poets and how his experiences influenced his work.

What We Say: "George The Poet meditates on his life, from being born to Ugandan parents at St Raphael's Estate in Neasden to attending university, to becoming a musician. However, this is not just a simple memoir: the book reexamines colonialism and the forgotten history, exploring the war against Blackness while redefining a genre" — Olivia McCrea-Hedley

What They Say: ”There's something special about it: the storytelling is unique, so exciting, so kinetic. Even though it's in your ears, you feel like you're walking along with George” — Candice Carty-Williams
