Chronicles by Dionne Brand Chronicles, Paperback (October 2011)

Explores and chronicles how history shapes human existence, in particular the lives of those ruptured and scattered by New World slaveries and modern crises. This title charts a collective as well as a personal journey, delving into the burdens of history and the fugitive, contingent, dynamic, and mutable geographies of the African diaspora.

Fierce Departures by Dionne Brand Fierce Departures, Paperback (February 2009)

With selections, drawn from work between 1990 and 2006, this title delineates how history marks and dislocates peoples of African Diaspora, how nations, concretely and conceptually, fail to create safe haven, and how nevertheless human desire persists.
