In Celebration Of All That Burdens Us
Poems, Essays, Stories
by Ségun Ògúntólá

Ségun Ògúntólá believes Literature yearns to sing to us anew on Existence, our unsettling personal and societal concerns, soothe our aches, celebrate our life in all its manifold complexities, counsel and give us hope, impart knowledge. Wisely, Literature aims to do so by creating a tranquil psychical space for us in thoughtful, novel books in which, in solitude, it can engross us in thought on Existence. He strives to be a conduit for Literature in its noble endeavor.

"Segun's vision and voice are truly special. I savor his command of language, I learn from the way he portrays and describes. I want to write like him and I want people to experience his world, his joys, his pains, his vulnerabilities, his beautiful tributes to those that came before him and those that we have not yet learned of. I want people to know Ben Okri and Fela Kuti and Miles Davis and Cassandra Wilson and invisible immigrants living beneath the radar. There are suggestions and/ or full descriptions of these and more. Take this book with you and read it on the way to work, at work, or during your brief spare time in any given day and feel better about the possibilities. Learn about a history that has not been given it's proper due. Search your soul for the best within." -Enid Farber - New York
