"Osbey creates a world inhabited by féfé women,
"known not for mercy/ but for grace."
It is a world where men and women consign each other to asylums of uneasy peace, a world of solo flights,where no onejourneys accompanied."
-- The Editors.
First published by the Callaloo Poetry Series in 1983, Osbey's first collection was reprinted by the University Press of Virginia in 1985. Ceremony for Minneconjoux is again out of print and available through rare book dealers.
