Cape Town Station

Book by Poetry
Thursday, March 28, 2013 Review by SoTB

CapeTownStationBy:  Gloria Creed-Dikeogu

Gloria Creed-Dikeogu spent the best part of twenty years compiling three volumes of personal poems, while following various personal and educational pursuits in South Africa and the United States. Initially, the poems that were compiled in these volumes were only used on occasion for sharing with small groups of friends and were originally not written for publication. The sixty poems that were selected for inclusion in this work, from that original compilation, were chosen and reworked in the hope that they might be perused and enjoyed by all. Especially those who have experienced the joys of parenthood, the pressures and frustrations of learning to love in, live in and thrive in a new culture, to interact with loved-ones and with loss at a distance and to accept the complexities and complications that follow in the wake of assimilation.

So when her father drops her off at college to start her freshman year, his words of advice to his bookish daughter are to start acting like a young person and finally have some fun.

The Tournament: Every year, the senior members of The Clubhouse engage in a golf-inspired tournament to see who can sleep with the most freshman girls. When Rainy finds out about The Tournament, she believes Aaron’s only interest in her is to score points by taking her V-Card.

The Challenge: Can Aaron convince Rainy that his feelings for her are true and that she won’t be just another notch on his tournament scorecard?
