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

CIR26

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.
