A LIME JEWEL
Anthology of Poetry and Short Stories in Aid of Haiti
‘A Lime Jewel is a love song of prickles and polish, that bristles with the urgency of a towncrier, swells with the patience of a mother and hums with the wisdom of a village elder. A Lime Jewel is a dignified way to contribute to the rehabilitation of Haiti . . .’ Nii Ayikwei Parkes (Tail of the Blue Bird)
