Fascinating and complex in its language and tone, this collection speaks to Barbosa’s relationship woes, her identity as a black woman, and her Cape Verdean roots. A Bennington College graduate, Barbosa peppers her debut with odes to jazz, island life, and references to the traditional Cape Verdean song "Sodade." Check out her series of "Strology" poems for a sample. ~ Reviewed by Joe Michon-Huneau
