"An archipelagic adventure, Dannabang Kuwabong arrives in the second decade of the new century from seemingly random shores, sighing, singing, certain, with a poetic text of assiduous import." -- Lasana M. Sekou, author of The Salt Reaper - Poems from the Flats
"These poems, lush, sharp, pliable and aromatic, are about love that one finds in a place and among a people, Haiti, St Croix, Dominica and elsewhere in the Caribbean. Each poem invites you to enter, rest and reflect for a while...A cohesive collection with great surprises." --Opal Palmer Adisa, author of Eros Muse and I Name Me Name.
