Sun Time Snow Time This welcome new edition of poems by Grace Nichols brings back into print two earlier collections: Come On Into My Tropical Garden, which remembers her Guyanese childhood, and Give Yourself a Hug, which takes its inspiration from her move to England. The proximity of poems rooted in two different countries and cultures prompts interesting contrasts and connections as pictures from a rural Caribbean childhood in a small community with its own rich colloquial language and memorable characters are succeeded by images of a more urban landscape and lifestyle where people are packed into the underground like sardines or thrill to the street crowds at carnival time, and seem to feel the roll of the seasons and the extremes of climate more keenly.
