Fried Green Plantains
I had the pleasure of working with Natalie on this beautiful book of poems.
Fried Green Plantains is a delightful recipe of poems, inviting the reader to sample visual images of an authentic Jamaican landscape. The perception of the vestiges of colonisation, and the imagery of an emerging urban Jamaican society, are sometimes jarring, but always profoundly honest and relatable. The culinary classification of the poems provide a refreshing opportunity for the reader to experience intense emotions thematically.
