Caroline Carver grew up on a remote sugar plantation in Jamaica. She also lived in Bermuda, and spent half her life in Canada before moving to Cornwall in 1989. She won the 1998 National Poetry Competition and has won, or been placed in, several other competitions. Jamaica remains the most powerful influence in her writing. Her first collection, jigharzi an me, published by Semicolon in 2000, was written entirely in her childhood patois which also recurs in many of the poems in this her second collection.
‘This is a dazzling debut.’ Dickon Abbot, reviewing jigharzi an me in Acumen
