The poems in Homelands by Eric Ngalle Charles are irresistibly rich in tone, subject, and emotion. Native to Cameroon in west Africa, he grew up in a landscape of stunning natural beauty and in a culture of vivid mythology and striking musical and literary traditions, but with uncertain and volatile politics and a sometimes-troubled family dynamic.

Author Biography

Eric Ngalle Charles was born in the west African state of Cameroon, a country rich in mythology and natural beauty, but with a troubled colonial history. Arriving in Wales as a near-penniless migrant, after being trafficked to Russia by a criminal gang, he has remade his life as a poet/writer, and dazzling performer of his own work. His debut poetry collection, Homelands, follows his memoir I, Eric Ngalle.
