Ijeoma Umebinyuo, Questions for Ada

Cover for Questions for Ada by Ijeoma Umebinyuo, Nigerian writer. 
with the drawing "Migration" by Ijeoma, in the head silhouette, inspired by Nsibidi.

The artistry of QUESTIONS FOR ADA defies words, embodying the pain, the passion, and the power of love rising from the depths of our souls.  Ijeoma Umebinyuo’s poetry is a flower that will blossom in the spirit of every reader as she shares her heart with raw candor.  From lyrical lushness to smoky sensuality to raw truths, this tome of transforming verse is the book every woman wants to write but can’t until the broken mirrors of their lives have healed.  In this gifted author’s own words—“I am too full of life to be half-loved.”  A bold celebration of womanhood.

“they are afraid
a woman can
be this free. this soft.
this strong. this color.” 
Ijeoma Umebinyuo
