The Grapes from the Baobab by Ibrahima Amadou Niang (Amalion Publishing, 2017) CIR26

In these fierce and moving and often haunting poems a Senegalese writer, poet and political scientist speaks of love and travels and sadness and compassion – for people and for pelicans! – and sometimes of anger. The love is deep and nuanced, the way with words is scintillating and apt and impressive way beyond what one would expect from a young wordsmith, and the anger can only be that of a profoundly committed poet. His heart is strong and nimble. He does pride to his ancestors. He takes his place among the finest voices of his country.
