“In this highly readable, sorely needed collection, Tina Tamsho-Thomas tackles subjects close to many people’s hearts. There are personal poems and political poems. There are poems designed to make you grin and others which evoke our remembrance for horrors past. Some poems catapult us to the heart of Jamaica, or stir us in our front rooms: as we sip our tea, we are encouraged to expect ‘cake, not crumbs’. Others teach us how we can mend a broken heart. Some poems deal with emotional, complex questions, such as excluded, absent fathers and the continuing
colonialist onslaught on Africa. The collection celebrates the enduring spiritual relationship between Tina and her excluded, Nigerian father. For the Black women who seek out her wisdom, there is a guaranteed upliftment and an exhortation to re-position ourselves, to assume our rightful stature. For everyone else, the collection allows you to watch and learn. Read on.”
