Winepress Publishing and GriotsLounge Publishing are pleased to announce that How Morning Remembers the Night, a debut poetry collection by Ifesinachi Nwadike, will be joining our already impressive list of publications later this year.
How Morning Remembers the Night captures the poet’s journey on the streets of memory. He voyages into houses filled with grief and those filled with polithievians — a word coined for corrupt politicians—like an expert navigator.
This collection of poetry leaves the reader enthralled by how the poet paints images with words, spellbinding his readers.
The poet also weaves emotive lines for lovers to savour as he takes the reader on a trip full of heartbreaks and near-misses in his recollections. In the last poem, he fittingly ends the book with “May rose flowers bloom on the road that crossed our paths”; a tribute to a love so close, so real, but now a memory. This is a fascinating collection broken into parts but all connected to a general theme — personal and collective grief.
How Morning Remembers the Night is the first book that we are jointly publishing with GriotsLounge Publishing. We recently entered into a partnership with GriotsLounge to allow for both our publishing houses to pool resources together to better cover the literary landscape in Nigeria. How Morning Remembers the Night is the first child of this partnership.
How Morning Remembers the Night will be available for sale online, through our partner, GriotsLounge Publishing’s website, www.griotslounge.com and at reputable bookshops nationwide later this year.
