A lengthy poem celebrating the British author s marriage to a Nigerian woman, this narrative is a meditation on love on both a personal and communal level. As it knits together the philosophical theme of I and you, this remarkable poem expresses the inherent tensions of the union and observes both the harsh facts and the undeniable beauty of the northern Nigerian setting. Touching on various topicsincluding exposure to racism, unfamiliar customs, homesickness, cold weather, religion, and deaththis sensitive account provides insight into differing cultural perceptions and the meanings of love."

"This is a work of great intelligence and immaculate formalism. Haynes' rhyming energy never flags, his writing stays dynamic, and at the end he employs one of the best imagistic sleights-of-hand since William Carlos Williams." --Kathryn Maris, "Poetry London"This is a work of great intelligence and immaculate formalism. Haynes rhyming energy never flags, his writing stays dynamic, and at the end he employs one of the best imagistic sleights-of-hand since William Carlos Williams. Kathryn Maris, "Poetry London""
