Sparkling crystal waters and coral beaches, velvet-smooth dolphins and flying fish, whispered ghost stories and the pung-la-la chorus of frogs...the sights and sounds, tastes and tales of the Caribbean come alive in this glorious collection of poetry. Divided into five sections each brilliantly illustrated by a major contemporary artist, the experience of living and leaving the Caribbean is vividly recalled in this vibrant anthology, edited by leading Caribbean poets John Agard and Grace Nichols.
John Agard and Grace Nichols were brought up in Guyana, moving to Britain in 1977. Both are well-known writers and performers of poetry. Other poetry collections include A Caribbean Dozen (9781406309522) and From Mouth to Mouth (9780744583830). They live in Sussex.
