Product Overview

Rooted in the landscape of the Bahamas and marked by a mastery of syntax, these poems are finely crafted works of art that reveal a distinctive use of language that is sensual in the most literal sensethe smell of vanilla and sex; the sound of waves, radio, and voices; the taste of crab soup; the texture of hurricane wind; and the chaos of colors bombarding the eye. With a sharp sense of detail and unsettling truth-telling, the poems eschew all but the most utilitarian of punctuation marksquestion marks, apostrophes, and inverted commaswhile encapsulating the very essence of the Bahamas.
