Art, landscape, and memory are interwoven strands in the fabric of Grace Nichols' latest collection, Picasso, I Want My Face Back. The book opens with a long poem in the voice of Dora Maar, who, as Picasso's muse and mistress, was the inspiration for his iconic painting, The Weeping Woman. The poems are almost interlocking reflections that echo the cubist manner of the painting and allow us to enter the shifting surfaces of Dora Maar's mind and her journey of self reclamation. ""Speaks through the voice of Dora Maar, Pablo Picasso's lover. . . The intriguing angle to Picasso makes for unique poems well worth reading."" - The Midwest Book Review

About the Author:

Born in Guyana, Grace Nichols has lived in Britain since 1977. Her first collection, I is a Long Memoried Woman (1983) won the Commonwealth Poetry Prize. Her later poetry collections - published by Virago - include The Fat Black Woman's Poems (1984), Lazy Thoughts of a Lazy Woman (1989) and Sunris (1996), along with numerous poetry books for younger readers, including Come on into My Tropical Garden (1988), Give Yourself a Hug (1994), Everybody Got a Gift (2005) and Startling the Flying Fish (2006), poems which tell the story of the Caribbean. Her latest collection Picasso, I Want My Face Back (Bloodaxe Books, 2009) will be followed by her Selected Poems from Bloodaxe in 2010, on the occasion of her 60th birthday. She lives in Sussex with the poet John Agard and their family.
