Coco Island is an integrous first collection from the Jamaican poet and novelist Christine Roseeta Walker, exploring the bittersweet effects of a postcolonial world.
'Not least among the achievements of Christine Roseeta Walker's work is an enviable kind of literary alchemy. Her poems transmute the stuff of a Jamaican childhood and heritage into language which both invites and quietly disturbs.'
