Manufacturer's product description
Grace Nichols gives us images that stare us straight in the eye images of joy challenge accusation. Her 'fat black woman' is brash; rejoices in herself; poses awkward questions to politicians rulers suitors to a white world that still turns its back. Grace Nichols writes in a language that is wonderfully vivid yet economical of the pleasures and sadnesses of memory of loving of 'the power to be what I am a woman charting my own futures'.
