Transformatrix free pdf 'They call me Jax, though my real name's Eva. The whole of the Jackson Five rolled into one serious diva No.1 on the guest list, top of the charts When I make my grand entrance, the sea of sequins parts...' From Hamburg to Jo'burg, Oslo to Soho, Patience Agbabi follows her critically acclaimed debut collection R.A.W., with Transformatrix, an exploration of women, travel and metamorphosis. Inspired by 90s poetry, 80s rap and 70s disco, "Transformatrix" is a celebration of literary form and constitutes a very potent and telling commentary on the realities of late twentieth century Britain. It is also a self-portrait of a poet whose honesty, intelligence and wit manages to pack a punch, draw a smile and warm your heart all at once.
