Product Description

About the Author

Tregenza A. Roach was born in Sandy Point, St. Kitts and moved with his family to St. Thomas in the United States Virgin Islands when he was eight years of age. The complications of migration, even between two small islands resting so closely together, were enormous, and they have shaped an imagination of incredible breadth. The memory which inspires his poetry is rooted in the canefields and fishing villages of a largely agrarian St. Kitts of the 1960s and the booming commercial port of Charlotte Amalie which offers a stark contrast to the idyll.Some of the works in this collection are here published for the first time. Others have been published in three volumes of The Caribbean Writer, Calabash Journal of New York University, Yellow Cedars Blooming and Seasoning for the Mortar. Roach was recognized for his work in the 20th edition of The Caribbean Writer with his selection for the Marguerite Cobb McKay prize. His short story Sara of Sinoe was chosen for the Margaret A. Walker fiction prize by the Detroit Writers Guild in 1999.Roach serves on the adjunct faculty of The University of the Virgin Islands where he teaches in law and the humanities. --This text refers to the Paperback edition.

Format: Hardcover
A very well written book of poetry. The author has fully researched the content of it, and is a very easy read that positively provokes thought. A must have book!
