by Kehinde SonolaTime Is Not Linear is a work that should not be. Yet, similar to time and regardless of joy, pain, inspiration and procrastination, it exists.
Bursting with radiance are 101 original poems and 57 of the poet's personal photographs, which celebrate a third of a century of living in the forefront and shadows of this joyous world, not to mention a myriad of distinctive encounters with incredible people from every corner of the beautiful place humans call, 'Earth'.
An ill-fated excursion to Hong Kong, finding love in Lithuania, a heartwarming yet heartbreaking hug with a baby orangutan in Bali, memories of nighttime surfing in Nigeria, the allure of South America, journeys on the London Underground, the stunningly stark beauty of a dessert in the Middle East, mountain air in New Zealand, human trafficking in Thailand, homelessness in Japan as well as debauchery in Los Angeles are just some of the personal moments captured at times vividly, and at times subtly, amongst the book's pages.
In what is Kehinde Sonola's last published work of poetry, nothing is left on the table as the poet bares all emotionally and spiritually covering issues of life, death, love, despair, hope, activism, self-identity and a plethora of challenges and delights all people face daily.
Wrapping up the work sumptuously is a glorious cover created by the incomparable Ting Huang.
