Come Home Alive
"What are the real and metaphorical places we do battle in? How are the barriers of the heart and the stone challenged when you are defined as Other?"
Come Home Alive is Penny Pepper's debut poetry collection. It reflects a diversity of thought and emotion, resonating with her signature combination of compassion, wit and protest. This collection gathers together some of her most successful live pieces including the protest of London Bus, the anthemic Cripplegate Town, and the spit of outrage in Special. Penny's work has been described as euphoric melancholic, reflected in poems such as Sonnet for Blues and Rain. "
“Penny Pepper’s work is a virtuoso display of invention, wit and courage. It makes us see the world differently” – Margaret Drabble
