Nile River Woman By Kola Boof (Door of Kush, 100 pages, $12.99)
This year marks a big one for activist and artist Kola Boof. In addition to the release of Nile River Woman, a collection of poems, Boof has two additional titles, short story collection Long Train to the Redeeming Sin and erotic historical novel Flesh and the Devil, also due out this year. Kola Boof, born Naima Bint Harith in the Sundan, came to the United States after her parents were murdered for speaking out against the contemporary Arab/African slave trade. Ms. Boof, much like her writing, has been the subject of much controversy. Click here to learn more.
