What is home if not that 'little corner of earth' where the poet listens to the heartbeat of a troubled century? In this remarkable body of poems, place crosses path with time and the present is a delicate diaphragm between the past and the future in documenting important and epic events in world history including the 2007 celebration of the 200th Anniversary of the Abolition of the Slave Trade and 9/11. This collection is a voiceprint of a poet who has played no small role in shaping the theme, tone and tenor of contemporary African poetry. Anyidoho says 'it is the burden and curse of the poet to sing the loss of all our crops after the raging fire has burned the bush and all the harvest into ash.' This is a distinguished collection and a must read. The book is accompanied by a double CD.
