The breakout poetry collection by Sunday Times bestselling author and presidential inaugural poet Amanda Gorman

'This is poetry rippling with communal recognition and empathy' Guardian

'This is more than protest.
It's a promise.'

Including 'The Hill We Climb,' the stirring poem read at the inauguration of the 46th President of the United States, Joe Biden, this luminous poetry collection by Amanda Gorman captures a shipwrecked moment in time and transforms it into a lyric of hope and healing. In Call Us What We Carry, Gorman explores history, language, identity, and erasure through an imaginative and intimate collage. Harnessing the collective grief of a global pandemic, these seventy poems shine a light on a moment of reckoning and reveal that Gorman has become our messenger from the past, our voice for the future.

Praise for 'The Hill We Climb':

'I was profoundly moved... The power of your words blew me away' Michelle Obama, TIME

'I was thrilled' Hillary Clinton

'She spoke truth to power and embodied clear-eyed hope to a weary nation. She revealed us to ourselves' Lin-Manuel Miranda, TIME

 
 

Review

A book of poetry so alive you want to hold it and protect it, to read it all at once, and then immediately read it again -- Malala Yousafzai

Haunting... A soaring sense of history and solidarity pervades Gorman's debut collection... Call Us What We Carry is wide awake to the complex strata of human history and restlessly original in its poetic form... This is poetry rippling with communal recognition and empathy -- Kit Fan - Guardian

Between breath, light, water and soil, text messages and letters, and visual formations of ships, whales and flags, Gorman´s Call Us What We Carry is an inventive literary resurrection - Daily Mail

Amanda Gorman is a seer, a seeker, a speaker of our most difficult and astonishing truths. Reading these poems, I feel at once haunted, heartened and formidably ministered to -- Tracy K. Smith

A new collection full of hope and healing from the young American poet who electrified the world - Guardian, *50 Biggest Books of Autumn 2021*

A thoughtful gift for Christmas, but make sure to get one for yourself too - Waitrose Weekend

In "penning a letter to the world as a daughter of it," Gorman doesn't merely transcribe a diary of a plague year; her bold, oracular pronouncements bear witness to collective experience, with an uncanny confidence and a prescient tone that are all the poet's own -- Kevin Young - The New Yorker

A poet of real promise - Daily Telegraph
