Jamaica/U.S.A. / 2016
Winner of the Prairie Schooner Book Prize in Poetry. "Colliding with and confronting The Tempest and postcolonial identity, the poems in Safiya Sinclair’s Cannibal explore Jamaican childhood and history, race relations in America, womanhood, otherness, and exile...Safiya Sinclair was born and raised in Montego Bay, Jamaica. Sinclair received her MFA in poetry from the University of Virginia and is a Dornsife Doctoral Fellow at the University of Southern California." - summary and bio from Nebraska Press. Her poetry is chaotically beautiful. It ebbs and flows quite melodically.
