“Eze presents deeply moving poems about the lasting effects and traumas of the Nigerian Civil War (1967-1970), which took the lives of more than 1 million people. Eze understands the nature of memory — described in one poem as a blind dog, a cat, and a tick — and the need to remember the past, no matter how painful.”
