In a series of poetic conversations, Cain - the first murderer - provides therapy sessions for the author, covering topics from zombies to interfaith dialogue. These poems are tricksy, hilarious and always utterly ingenious.

In an anarchic re-energising of Genesis 4:9-13, Cain’s central sequence of 31 anagram poems demonstrates Luke Kennard’s trademark surreal wit whilst also exploring the possibility of spiritual experience within an increasingly absurd universe.

Published in a beautifully designed hardback that recalls the Missal or prayer-book, Cain is a whip-smart and illuminating collection from one of British poetry’s brightest lights.
