Coming Up Hot: Eight New Caribbean Poets from the Caribbean (Peekash Press)
Here is an opportunity to discover some of the best new, unpublished poets from the Caribbean.
Meet Danielle Boodoo-Fortune and her richly gothic take on love and its complications; Danielle Jennings exuberant narratives of family history and the struggles for respect between men and women; Ruel Johnson s often witty attempts to confront the insanity of contemporary Guyana s race wars and political corruption through the formal coolness of poetry; Monica Minott s frank celebrations of women s sexuality and her attempt to re-enter the world of spirit possession and trance; Debra Providence s spare womanist reflections that pack a more devastating punch by saying more with less; Shivanee Ramlochan s confidently experimental poems that explore the threatening uncertainties of the present through the imagery of speculative fictions set in some post-disaster world; Colin Robinson s polyphonic, modernist reflections on the queer Caribbean and its joys and sorrows; and Sassy Ross s tightly structured explorations of memory between the here and there of St Lucia and New York.
