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. Illustrated with photographs by Tehron Royes, it was Breeze’s first new collection since Third World Girl: Selected Poems (2011), and was published on her 60th birthday.
