Giant is a manifestation, a creation story born of the ocean. Words turn over and under, shipwrecked then safe-shored. A blend of ghosts and myths meld and coalesce into being, as headstrong as the mountains, as wavering as the sea.
Richard Georges is the winner of the 2015 Marvin Williams Prize for Caribbean Literature. His poems have been shortlisted for several awards, namely the Forward Prize for Best First Collection, the Hollick Arvon Prize, the Small Axe Literary Prize, and the Wasafiri New Writing Prize.
