BOOK REVIEW: “My Modern Woman” by Giscard Nazon is a book that begins with its’ cover, back and front; if you get ‘it’ you will get it. Everyone will not be able to appreciate the length and depth of this single poem that took 57 pages to write.
As I read “My Modern Woman” I felt the unique rhythm of the words written by Giscard Nazon as he weaved faith, politics, life and relationship into a prophetic message. His words were more than a celebration of womanhood; they were a warning to those who do not pay attention to the events of the day and a reminder of God’s word. None of the words written were subtle yet if you have difficulty following the flow of poems that do not rhyme the book may be difficult to understand.
I enjoyed this book and I do recommend it. However, the very thing that makes me like “My Modern Woman” is probably what will make others not like it. This poem made me think, like Psalm 119 (which I love) I had to read some passages over again. “My Modern Woman” is not something you will read one time and grasp every concept presented.
Upon successful completion of this book you may find that there are some things you agree with and others you do not. However, the fact that you completed the book is an indication that Giscard Nazon did exactly what the book cover promised: it got you to think about your faith, your life, your government and your relationships, all in just 57 pages.
I recommend this book. This is a book I would purchase. Marsha L Randolph
