This is one of the most exciting posts I’ve written in a while. I’ve been a book worm all my life and I’m so happy to add three books to my shelves by powerful women that I know and love.
This is a list of three special books that you need to pre-order on Amazon, right now.
I’ll share each book with you and why the Author means something to me.
1.) Rummage, by Ife-Chudeni A. Oputa
A journey through girlhood, self-discovery, and the little acts of violence we inflict on one another.
In an astounding debut poetry collection, Ife-Chudeni A. Oputa presents a relentless but refined portrait of one young woman’s journey toward self-discovery. Her poems explore the eternal themes of the human condition—nature, origin, shame, identity, desire, mortality—with sensitivity and specificity. They illuminate and interrogate the ways that her characters inflict and experience pain, ultimately revealing how we must all face our shame in order to grow. No voice is blameless; no person is exempt. Divided into four sections, the collection reads as a life cycle of emotional metamorphosis: girlhood and sexuality, trauma, relationships, and grief. Rummage is a wildly courageous and lyrical book full of music, metaphor, and the power of memory.
I’m so incredibly proud of this author because, she’s my little sister!!!
Yes, my little sister has a book coming out and I’d love for you to pre-order it here. Her work is so powerful, you’ll get your whole life. You’ll hear me brag about this a lot more, but for now I’ll let the Editor-in-Chief of her publisher, chime in…
“Rummage is an extraordinary debut, full of startling honesty and relentless investigation into what it means to be alive,” said David Blum, Publisher and Editor-in-Chief of Little A. “We are thrilled to publish Rummage. Ife-Chudeni A. Oputa’s poetry exemplifies the urgent, emotional and moving poetry that Little A will continue to champion.”
