Crossroads and Unholy Water (Crab Orchard Award Series in Poetry)

Crossroads and Unholy Water (Crab Orchard Award Series in Poetry) Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Marilene Phippss poetry invites the reader to share sharp slices of Caribbean experience: Haiti is both stage and backdrop for people who move in various strata of the social scheme and through the three stages of life, in lieu of answers to the Sphinxs riddle. Through voices, nostalgic and tender, denouncing and shrill, we journey to a mythologizing Caribbean land populated with people whose dramatic intensity and fights for life are turned into sometimes funny, sometimes disquieting, and always richly evocative, palpable poetry.
