"I am an Okigbo evangelist... Christopher Okigbo is a great poet whose lines everybody should know by heart. They are tremendously beautiful."
- Ben Okri
Celebrated writer and winner of the Booker Prize for Fiction.
"Steeped alike in Western Modernist aesthetics and myth -making traditions of his Igbo background, he fused worlds with an assurance that married lyric and epic, audacity and grace. This collection… will remind existing readers of Okigbo's prowess and dazzle new ones."
