The home of international award-winning Nigerian poet was devastated by Hurricane Katrinia in New Orleans, destroying his library, manuscripts, and other valuable possessions. This is his first collection since that time. Sensuous, daring and characteristically lyrical; these poems are a testimony to the affirmation of life and the indestructibility of the creative spirit. We see the deeply personal side of the bard widely regarded as a political poet.
