Product description

Review

'Not only rich music, an easy lyricism, but also grit, and earthy honesty, a willingness to be vulnerable and clean.' --- Gwendolyn Brooks.

'Grace Nichols has wit, acidity, tenderness, any number of gifts at her disposal.' --- Jeanette Winterson.

'Grace Nichols came to Britain from Guyana at the age of 27 and she has carried the warmth of her Caribbean sensibility through many a cold English winter. Her poems celebrate sensuality and generosity and attack petty mean-spiritedness... Deeply Caribbean in sensibility, she writes sensitively of other traditions, especially Africa and India.' --- Peter Forbes, Contemporary Writers.

About the Author

Born in Guyana, Grace Nichols has lived in Britain since 1977. Her first collection, I is a Long Memoried Woman (1983) won the Commonwealth Poetry Prize. Her later poetry collections - published by Virago - include The Fat Black Woman's Poems (1984), Lazy Thoughts of a Lazy Woman (1989), Sunris (1996), winner of the Guyana Prize, and Startling the Flying Fish (2006), poems which tell the story of the Caribbean, along with numerous poetry books for younger readers, including Come on into My Tropical Garden (1988), Give Yourself a Hug (1994) and Everybody Got a Gift (2005). She has published two books with Bloodaxe, her latest collection, Picasso, I Want My Face Back (2009), and I Have Crossed an Ocean: Selected Poems (2010), published on the occasion of her 60th birthday. She lives in Sussex with the poet John Agard and their family.
