9781845230197: Days and Nights of the Blue Iguana

Jamaica is the thematic epicenter of this compassionate, painterly collection of poems about the islands of the Caribbean and beyond. The story of the Ancestors—a nomadic family that wanders up and down Jamaica—is related with a breathtaking descriptiveness that uncovers both love and exasperation for the tropical island. This collection also contains a selection of the most popular poems from the author's first book of poetry, The Caribbean Raj.

About the Author:

Heather Royes is an HIV/AIDS consultant and a poet whose work is featured in such anthologies as the Heinemann Book of Caribbean Poetry, the Oxford Book of Caribbean Verse, and the Penguin Book of Caribbean Verse.

Review:

"Ms. Royes is a considerable poet and an important interpreter of the modern Jamaican experience . . . Her poems are laden with multiple meanings or levels. They move backwards, forwards, and sideways through [the Caribbean’s] linguistic, cultural, and historical continuums."  —Kenneth Ramchand
