Poetry, prose, art

Canouan Suite and Other Pieces is a gorgeous new book from Philip Nanton with art to complement the text. It will be launched in the UK in March. As Stewart Brown, co-editor of the Oxford Book of Caribbean Poetry, says: “Readers of Philip Nanton’s Island Voices [also published by Papillote Press] will be familiar with his storyteller’s ear but Canouan Suite and Other Pieces gives us a sense of Nanton as a more complex, serious and accomplished writer than perhaps we had realised.” It was published in November 2016 and launched in Barbados in December 2016.
