A lyrical extravaganza, evocative of personal experiences and unique insights, CAPITALS embodies a medley of harmonious notes struck across the globe, resulting in the confluence of poignant imagery and soulful verse. A remarkable anthology to acquaint you intimately with the Capital cities of the world, it describes in exquisite detail their undulating terrains and pulsating lifelines and their cities beckon even the most seasoned traveller with promises of discovery. Embark on a journey like never before, as Kwame
Dawes in his poem Green Boy takes you to a night in Accra when the crescendo of drums finally
overcomes the gunshots, or accompany Mark Mcwatt as he drifts down memory lane in the suburbs of Georgetown, and feel the raw emotion as Salah Al Hamdani laments of what has become of Baghdad. From Abuja to Zagreb, Seoul to Sucre, Ottawa to Wellington and Reykjavik to Cape Town, leave behind the trepidations of the unknown and the comforts of home, discard the frivolities of journeying to the physical facade of a beloved city-and set out to experience the world anew, for what this book offers you is a journey for the soul.
