Overheard in a Tower Block

Joseph Coelho, illus by Kate Milner

Otter-Barry Books

Award-winning poet Joseph Coelho’s astonishing new collection is a powerful and moving poetic narrative about growing up in the city.


Gazing at the stars from five storeys up,

smelling the bins from five storeys below. 

Overheard arguments,

overheard laughter.


A disappearing father and a Mermaid-Queen mother; statues that sing for flesh and blood; bullies who kick you under the table; perfect red trainers – and the things that lurk in the library….


Award-winning poet Joseph Coelho’s astonishing new collection is a powerful and moving poetic narrative about growing up in
the city.
