• LET ME SPEAK BEFORE I DIIIE: I Know Who Hurt the Girl

    This, yet another soul-searching collection, can best be described as a letter. Festus Okwekwe through series of them sends a strong message to the society. He gives thought-provoking revelations and makes claims (and counterclaims) that spur serious discussions.

    This comes as a deliberate effort to break the culture of silence and smash the imaginary glass boundaries of ‘know your place’ which people, especially the females, have been subjected to at one point or the other and against which some have wondered time and again – what would truly happen if we shattered it?

  • An African Elegy

    Dreams are the currency of Okri’s writing, particularly in this first book of poems, An African Elegy, but also in his books of short stories and prize-winning novel The Famished Road. Okri’s dreams are made on the stuff of Africa’s colossal economic and political problems, and reading the poems is to experience a constant succession of metaphors of resolution in both senses of the word. Virtually every poem contains an exhortation to climb out of the African miasma, and virtually every poem harvests the dream of itself with an upbeat restorative ending’ – Giles Foden, Times Literary Supplement

  • Sister Outsider

    A self-described “black lesbian feminist warrior poet,” Lorde had an exceptional ability to transform her “hopes and dreams toward survival and change” into beautifully actionable language. Arguing for intersectionality early on, she writes that our demographic differences must be seen as “a fund of necessary polarities between which our creativity can spark like a dialectic.” As white supremacy becomes increasingly visible in the United States — on the streets of Charlottesville, in threats against undocumented children and attacks on NFL players (to scratch the surface) — Lorde’s seminal collection of essays and speeches, Sister Outsider, proves as necessary and powerful a tool in the canon of contemporary progressive theory as it was when first published in 1984.

  • The Texture Of Air

    THE TEXTURE OF AIR, a slim volume of 45 poems, is Sodiq Alabi’s debut collection. Apart from that the poetry in this book starts from the cover where the eye is greeted by a whirlwind of brilliant colours, I also like how the quality of the binding re-assures me that our printing/publishing houses are not resting on their oars in the race to perfection.
