Poetry. African American Studies. This posthumous collection of Lester Afflick's finest poems has been compiled by his dearest friends and most discerning readers. Born in Jamaica, Afflick was a vital force and fixture on the New York poetry scene from the early 1980s until his untimely death in January 2000. "Afflick's death at 43 cut short a literary voice that was just beginning to find its maturity, a force that had just begun to hurricane density, that spoke to desert and crag, the heat of an unforgiving sun and maudlin existence, rendering the maudlin with a tool both dry and sharp. The poems in this collection represent Afflick's vision: Island culture and alienation in an urbane and witty top hat"--John Farris.
