A debut collection in the form of African praise poems, this book celebrates the people and landscapes of Ethiopia. Seen through the eyes of a young white boy in love with his older, black friend, these poems explore boyhood in all walks of life. As it hurtles through recent Ethiopian history, from the overthrow of Emperor Haile Selassie and the legacy of empire to the wars and famines of the last 40 years, this compilation also draws inspiration from the nation’s folk tales.
