Like Pamela Harrison’s previous collections, Glory Bush and Green Banana is a sequence of poems recounting her family's year volunteering for Project HOPE on the tiny Caribbean island of Carriacou. The poems explore the island life, its creatures and challenges, and her daughter’s special experience as the only white child on the island populated by 8,000 descendants of slaves.
How rich an experience it is to share the superbly presented jubilations, griefs, thrills and shocks of recognition in Ina Anderson’s Journey into Space. About the book, Baron Wormser has written, “Ina Anderson’s poems show us scenes from a fully lived and deeply appreciated life.
