I Did It Too by Deanna Rodger
The debut poetry collection we’ve all been waiting for.
Burning Eye Books are thrilled to announce the release of I Did It Too by acclaimed poet Deanna Rodger, illustrated by Joanna Layla.
The anticipated debut collection is available to buy now.
I Did It Too demonstrates a remarkable ability to craft timeless poems, written over a decade that embody the politics of state and person, the city to the universe.
Featuring commissions from St Paul’s Cathedral, Buckingham Palace and Guardian News. The collection includes well known poems such as Cog and Being British and the startlingly abrupt Nowadays.
I Did It Too is a public admittance, a powerful statement at a dramatic moment of history.
