John Agard has been broadening the canvas of British poetry for the past 30 years with his mischievous, satirical fables.
In "Clever Backbone", the Guyanese-born word magician plays havoc with biology and makes a monkey out of Darwinian evolution - on the occasion of the bicentenary of Charles Darwin's birth and the 150th anniversary of the publication of his "Origin of Species".
His "Alternative Anthem: Selected Poems" (with DVD) is published at the same time.
