Synopsis

As Good as Mango is a journey told in the sensual language of blues and jazz. It moves from the landscape of colonial Africa into the colonial American South, and into the present. The hauntings of the past come alive with echoes of unclaimed history. The poems in this collection simultaneously affirm and inspect black identity - and identity in general. These are the poems of the bitter/sweet taste on the tongues of exiles searching for home.
