Below are blurbs received so far:
“Waterman affirms Echezonachukwu Nduka’s stature as an experienced poet. The poems are carefully crafted, highly descriptive, and flow rhythmically. Throughout the collection, the poet’s experiences of navigating through the urban society come alive through images of music, water, and Catholicism. There are keen observations, witty and memorable images, and beautiful philosophical statements that make the poetry reading experience exhilarating. Nduka’s Waterman is versatile and uplifting.”
