Afaa M. Weaver

Black male/female relationships, and women and their significant place in the life of poet Afaa M. Weaver, make up the terrain of Talisman. The poems in this collection attempt to understand and recover the love that was there and which will always remain in the spiritual sense, long after the doors have slammed shut.

About the Author
"Descriptive and endearing poems capture five of the women in the poet's life. Love throbs in these lines, but sometimes it fails, too. . . . The poems are a bit like relationships--engaging and alive, but with a kick and a surprise at the end." --Akiba Sullivan Harper, Spelman College
