In the latest issue of Caribbean Beat, Shivanee Ramlochan reviews You Have You Father Hard Head by Colin Robinson.

You Have You Father Hard Head takes no doubtful prisoners: this collection kills indifference on sight. In poems that halo sins as precious, confronting the most vulnerable spaces for truths and lies to live by, Robinson has produced a reckoning, liberating space: a platform from which far more than flags can be flown.

Of the author himself, Ramlochan writes,

Trinidadian Colin Robinson both nods to antecedence and playfully grapples with contemporaneity. You Have You Father Hard Head is not the debut of a green-toothed newcomer, but the testament to thirty years’ poetic groundwork.
