Grace Nichols gives us images that stare us straight in the eye—images of joy, and images that challenge and accuse. Her "Fat Black Woman" is brash, rejoices in herself, and poses awkward questions to politicians, rulers, suitors, and to a white world that still turns its back. In language that is vivid yet spare, Grace Nichols writes of the pleasures and sadness of memory, of loving, of the power to be what I am, a woman, charting my own futures.
