Editorial Reviews


"[The poems of Red Earth / Latérite create] a comprehensive tale of life—'Life in all colors: green and unripe; bitter and bittersweet.' And it is the art with which this tale is carried through that has established Véronique Tadjo as one of the most accomplished writers of her generation, a fact to which this translation bears ample witness." (F. Abiola Irele, author of The African Imagination)

She is currently based in Johannesburg.
