Kate Tempest's words in Brand New Ancients are written to be read aloud; the book combines poem, rap, and humanist sermon, by turns tender and fierce.

Set in Southeast London, Brand New Ancients finds the mythic in the mundane. It is the story of two half-brothers, Thomas and Clive, unknown to each other - Thomas the result of an affair between his mother and Clive's father. Tempest, with wide-ranging empathy, takes us inside the passionless marriage of Jane and Kevin - the man who suspects Thomas is not his son, but loves him just the same - and the neighboring home of Mary and Brian, where betrayal has not been so placidly accepted. The sons of these two households - quiet, creative Thomas and angry, destructive Clive - will cross paths in adolescence, their fates converging with mortal fury.
