Fresh poetry book fills the heart with love

Akello: This brilliant collection is largely about something and somewhere we have all been in: love. 

What you need to know:

  • Entitled Akello, this brilliant collection is largely about something and somewhere we have all been in: love. 
  • Abigail’s diction will cut you to the quick, make you bleed, and then patch you up again. She tells stories of love with unflagging vitality, and she does not shy from using swear words when the occasion demands.

I have nothing but high regard for the fine art of African poetry, ranging from the epic sensations of Uganda’s Okot p’Bitek and his ilk of sages, to the new age Kenyan voices of Wanjiku Mwaurah, Tony Mochama and Michael Onsando — who recently launched his latest book, Something Quite Unlike Myself.
