Summary

Beneath the surface we are all connected . . .

‘An authentically soothing, powerful, thought-provoker.’
MATT HAIG

On Connection is medicine for these wounded times.’
MAX PORTER

On Connection came to me when I needed it most, and reminded me that the links we have to places, people, words, ourselves, are what keep us alive.’
CANDICE CARTY-WILLIAMS

Drawing on twenty years’ experience as a writer and performer, award-winning poet, rapper and storyteller Kae Tempest explores how and why creativity – however we choose to practise it – can cultivate greater self-awareness and help us establish a deeper relationship to ourselves and the world.

Personal, hopeful and written with piercing clarity, On Connection is a meditation on creative connection and call to arms that speaks to a universal yet intimate truth.

‘Persuasive and profound.’ OBSERVER
‘Tempest’s prose is crisp and thoughtful.’ NEW STATESMAN

Critic Reviews

[I] devoured this ... It is my sort of book. Musings on creativity and connection threaded with autobiographical edge and Jung and William Blake and others. An authentically soothing, powerful, thought provoker.

Matt Haig
Critic Reviews

Beautiful ... On Connection is soul work, deeply felt and beautifully wrought. The truth-speaker Kae Tempest takes to non-fiction with grace, musicality and innate essayistic skill. The book glows with their trademark honesty and questing integrity. On Connection is medicine for these wounded times.
