Ink on my Lips serves up a buffet of soul food mixing memories, anecdotes, prose and poems on the page alongside striking photographs and drawings. The anthology questions and explores topics of identity, femininity, ancestry, prejudice & tolerance, displacement & freedom, death & renewal and the often complex relationship between friends, family and lovers.
These themes are punctuated throughout with quirkier side dishes of baggy knickers, red trousers, finding lost glasses, golden shoes, rock concerts and toasts to the Queen. Ink on my Lips is a feast for the eyes, heart and mind.
