This highly imaginative and inventive collection of poems by fifty-two African poets writing from thirty countries across the continent, offers powerful poems that do not flinch from exploring experiences, hopes, aspirations that are deeply personal yet collective, the collection blurs the lines between the individual and collective voice in ways that are ironic, sad, humorous, light hearted, pessimistic, compassionate. Here poets subvert language, images and form to make them tell their stories, as well as being reflective of their past, present and future. Here poets remind us that human emotion(s) can be and are beautiful, the journey of self-discovery is as painful as it is cathartic.
