Reviews
"'I walk alone, trying to find / the whisper of roads, trying to sieve through water / the haunting' writes Romeo Oriogun in the book that is a journey, both through place and history, yes, but also the soul. To say that The Gathering of Bastards is an impressive collection is an understatement. It is one of soul-making indeed. Here 'rain bears witness to bodies / thrown overboard slave ships, ' and the spell of verbal music bears wisdom. Oriogun is a kind of writer whose music will never stop. The kind that will survive the test of time. Bravo."--Ilya Kaminsky, author of Deaf Republic
