“Rich-veined, sensual, and probing, this rewarding collection bears the imprint of a keen, world-wise poet. Tade Aina is a well-traveled man who weaves the lore, legends and histories of hearth and far-flung places with equal self-assurance.” – Okey Ndibe, author of Foreign Gods, Inc. (Soho Press 2014). “Tade Aina’s book, The Wanderer’s Waves, is an outstanding poetic chronicle of a trailblazer’s explorations, observations and experiences across the world, from the Americas to Zimbabwe and from the early years of youth. The composition style is a combination of traditional, renaissance and modernist archetypes in postcolonial poetic rendition. The poems, in total, also have a universal community spirit and reflectively speak to our blessed multiple identities as humans, while shedding clear light on the ties that bind humanity, such as ties to nature and mobility.” – Akwasi Aidoo, author of Rhythms of Dignity (Amalion 2020). “Travel, landscapes, people, the territories of the senses, of the heart. ‘Life, for him a geography of minutes’. Echoes from the experiences of the restless soul about the world, whose work also turns him into an eavesdropper, the fly-on-the-wall insights. In this body of work, to be gently savored, the reader will encounter the dimensions of worlds, refracted in a most refreshing way.” – Yvonne Adhiambo Owuor, author of Dust (Granta 2015).
