*The Fat Black Woman's Poems
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'.
