AbstractHistoryArchive Description

In an effort to 'produce an honest and unedited collective voice of homeless and "at risk" youth,' the editors of Cry Out have brought together the work of over fifty poets aged between twelve and twenty-five.

'Difficult subjects are tackled and tackled well. Child abuse, drug addiction, family problems, loneliness, and all the facets of living on the streets make this collection memorable, and more than that, a hard-hitting comment on the nineties.' (From the Introduction by Ann Davis)

Notes

  • Epigraph: For my life it's flying past my eyes / and happiness she's wearing / such a cunning disguise -- Emese Damasdy
