Praise for “The Memory of Seasons,” by Arukaino Umukoro
“To read Arukaino Umukoro is to see the world both as it is and as it could be. This duality—this gift of seeing—a mark of journalistic range and poetic temperament, shines through this stellar collection of poems, infusing his work with a unique clarity and depth that deftly navigates the nuances of love, nationhood and humanity.”- Efe Paul-Azino, Poet and Director, Lagos International Poetry Festival
