"Akashic's annual project to identify the best poetry written by African poets working today enters its fourth year with this limited edition box set that includes work by 10 poets."
--Publishers Weekly, Included in Spring 2019 Announcements / PoetryPraise for the chapbook series:"Dawes and Abani have taken on the vital project of publishing short collections by contemporary poets from Africa, packaged together in beautiful boxed sets."
--New York Times Magazine"An ambitious, vital project that delivers exactly what it promises...As a group, the chapbooks dispel stereotypes about African writing. They also illustrate what editors Dawes and Abani note about that many ways poets can understand or redefine their ties to Africa. These insights are poignant and valuable, especially at a time when millions around the globe find themselves somewhere between new countries and ancestral lands they've left behind."
--Washington Post"A collection pulsing with fresh talent in a series that poetry lovers worldwide should be grateful for."
