Blood and water

SKU: 9781906742898

Author: Catherine Okoronkwo




A compelling mix of poetry and prose memoir, Blood and Water ọbara na mmiri spurts, swells and flows across continents and cultures. It is a book of indelible stains and unbreakable bonds, of ‘in-between people’ and unripe plums, family battles and bold departures. Fascinated by the potency of her ancestors and the pull of Western vices, infusing history with streaks of magic realism, Catherine Okoronkwo reflects on a pilgrimage of self-discovery through the lens of place, myth, sickness and loss. The result is a debut collection to savour: a hard-won work of personal testimony and public witness.
