Pamela Mordecai : part five

What are you working on?

I am working on the last book of a trilogy on the lives and deaths of Jesus, Mary and Joseph. (It might end up as a quartet... I don't know yet.) I'm writing it backwards. Two books are already published: de book of Mary: a performance poem, the second book, appeared in 2015 and de Man: a performance poem, the last book,  appeared in 1995. The first book, "de book of Joseph," is the one I am working on. The three books are written entirely in Jamaican Creole, a powerful language for literature. I use it in both my poetry and fiction.
