Publisher's Synopsis

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

'Poetry so alive you want to hold it and protect it' Malala Yousafzai


The luminous poetry collection 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 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.

'A new collection full of hope and healing from the young American poet who electrified the world' Guardian

'Reading these poems, I feel at once haunted, heartened and formidably ministered to' Tracy K. Smith

'The liberating force of the stories these poems tell about our resilience and survival showcases a powerful griot for our times' Oprah Daily
