“An invaluable barometer of Vincentian society’s response to the volcanic eruption of the island’s mistress Soufriére in the 21st century, … Marks achieves what [Shake] Keane did for the same in the late 20th century.” —Michael McMillan, Visual Identities in Art and Design Research Centre, University of Johannesburg
“N.C. Marks’ collection combusts to bear witness to ‘rape culture,’ suppression and landscape destruction, and unearth a horizon of truths and hypocrisies often buried by the rubble and violence of dominant media narratives, corruption, abuse, and neoliberal agendas.” —Ubaldimir Guerra, Lecturer, Poet, University of Belize
Poetry. African & African American Studies.
