About this author

Uche Ogbuji (@uogbuji) was born in Calabar, Nigeria. He'd lived, among other places, in Egypt and England, but never anywhere longer than 3 years in his life until he came to Colorado. Here he was instantly smitten by the mountain landscape and cultural flavor, and he has now settled near Boulder with his wife and four children.

His poems, fusing Igbo culture, European Classicism, U.S. Mountain West setting, and Hip-Hop influences, have appeared widely.

Marvelous story of unconventional, non-linear, Nigerian cosmological structure. Quite an adventure in language and atmosphere, and almost certainly unlike anything else you'll have read.

Just a note derived from my comment on "My Life in the Bush of G

Not giving it a star rating because I'm too biased. I have an essay in it, "21st Century Beauty in Poetry." Let's just say I'm thrilled to be in the company of the other contributors, and thrilled the book has been garnering such buzz.
