Description

Ashuntantang is an extraordinary weaver of words who showcases vivid pictures that compete with 3D simulation. Her greatest asset is her use of the beautiful traditional Cameroonian anchor that evokes folk tales with its moonlight romance and glory. You feel, laugh, weep, shiver, wonder, and hail the triumphant spirit of the persona as it navigates African postcolonial and global experiences with the melancholy of an exile who is purposeful, strategic, and a lot of fun.

Acclaim
‘‘The language; it is the language, powerfully evocative and sensuous. Ashuntantang weaves words into a beautifully strong fabric that caresses and soothes, appealing to /invoking all the senses.’’ Omofolabo Ajayi-Soyinka, Associate Professor of Theatre, University of Kansas
‘‘This is a charming, and almost titillating first volume overflowing with romantic energy and a range of sentiments by a fiercely passionate poet. The thematic panorama is broad and the style provocatively confident.’’ Emmanuel Fru Doh, PhD Poet and Author ofWading the Tide
Ashuntantang’s poetry collection captures and shapes her landscape, sung -spoken to the unmistaken rhythm of her African sensibility. These poems are a pure delight whether read or seen/heard performed. Pamela J. Smith, Ph.D. Professor of English, Humanities & Women Studies University of Nebraska
