Merrie Afrika!

 Afrika! is an imaginary space, a 'k' and an exclamation mark away from the
processes, histories and conflicts that this, Adam Schwartzman's second
collection, takes for its subject. It is a space that is at once estranging
and, with its wily appropriations, home ground for the citizen of the
English language. Above all, in projecting 'the great out-there' into one
fictive universe, Afrika! eschews personality and vigorously re-affirms
community of descent, inheritance and association -- as the source of
authority, both poetic and political.
