These poems probe the definition of Motherland. Shara McCallum homogenizes childhood memories of her native Jamaica with a revised understanding of danger and corruption, teasing out notions of history, language, motherhood, rupture, memory, and identity. She weaves new cloth of oral tradition, struggling to arrange a comfort zone within the foreign manufactures of suburbia. Hers is the skilled music of a master.

Excerpt. Reprinted by permission. All rights reserved.:

From "From the Book of Mothers":

What is separation's geography?

The mother's body is the country


of our earliest memory, the soil

from which we are formed.


Our lives are an arc of flight:

away, toward, away.
