Though they traverse the wider Caribbean and beyond, Heather Royes’ centre of gravity is always Jamaica (‘No exile -small sabbaticals’) which arouses in her both love and exasperation. Ancestors - a nomadic family ‘wandering up and down the islands’, family and place are described with a painterly, compassionate eye for telling detail. The collection contains a generous selection from her first, now out of print book of poems, The Caribbean Raj.

Heather Royes was born and raised in Jamaica. She works as a consultant in HIV/AIDS and as a poet.
