    29/30 Benjamin Zephaniah - The Life and Rhymes of Benjamin Zephaniah

    Very readable and actually a lot more interesting than I thought it would be. Some of the chapters are very short and seem a bit pointless (like he is just noting that he wrote a particular book or play, and thanking the people involved). Whereas there is a frustrating lack of detail about other more interesting bits of his life (like football hooliganism or reggae soundsystem).
