After a childhood in care, 17-year-old Norman Greenwood saw his birth certificate for the first time: his name was Lemn Sissay, he was British-Ethiopian, and his mother had never stopped trying to get him back. Celebrated writer, poet and performer Lemn shares a deeply personal account of neglect and determination, misfortune and hope, cruelty and triumph.

Setelah masa kanak-kanak dalam asuhan, Norman Greenwood yang berusia 17 tahun melihat sertifikat kelahirannya untuk pertama kalinya: namanya adalah Lemn Sissay, ia adalah orang Inggris-Ethiopia, dan ibunya tidak pernah berhenti berusaha mendapatkannya kembali. Penulis, penyair, dan penampil pertunjukan terkenal Lemn berbagi kisah yang sangat pribadi mengenai pengabaian dan tekad, kemalangan dan harapan, kekejaman dan kemenangan.
