Patricia Jabbeh Wesley's latest book, When the Wanderers Come Home, was recently reviewed in World Literature Today by poet and literary scholar Matthew Shenoda. In the review, titled, "Verse Africa: The Malleable Poetics of Some Contemporary African Poets," Shenoda states “In Wesley’s poetry we see the immense power of a poet working to express the human complexity and grief of a nation and her people often defined by war. Wesley is a poet working to find language that can help show the fractures and fissures of a postwar nation and the personal realities of displacement and return.”
