Selected Titles

Carib's leap :
ISBN: 1845230221 OCLC: 61425863

Peepal Tree, Leeds : 2005.

Based on travels through the Caribbean Sea, its islands, and parts of the South American mainland, these poems acknowledge the damage wrought to Caribbean peoples, landscapes, and cultures by invaders of all kinds- from conquistadors to sex tourists. Caribbean references bring out the creativity of the region's peoples in dramatic and personable tones, making this fine poetry a valuable addition to the growing body of literary travel writing about the Caribbean.
