Woman on the Verandah, Reading
At the book-signing he spells out a name
And the brother recalls her on the verandah
These men will not let her go. She sits there
Aptly described by Gavin Ewart as ‘a writer of great intelligence and vitality who can command a very powerful wry political comment’, E.A. Markham was a leading light in British Caribbean writing. He was a poet, novelist and short story writer, essayist and anthologist. He completed this selection of poems from his previous books, together with an opening section of nearly fifty new poems, shortly before his death in Paris at Easter, 2008. It is a fine memorial to a fine poet.
