The Verandah Poems, Paperback / softback Book

The Verandah Poems Paperback / softback

Paperback / softback


The Verandah Poems was both a departure and a return for Jean ‘Binta’ Breeze, who left her village in Jamaica to become an internationally renowned Dub poet and storyteller.

This is a book of coming home and coming to terms, of contemplation rather than contention – of mellow, musing, edgy poems drawn from the life and lives around her.

It was Breeze's first new collection after Third World Girl: Selected Poems (2011), and was published on her 60th birthday.

Foreword by Kei Miller. With photographs by Tehron Royes.
