Safiya Sinclair is an multi-award-winning poet and author born and raised in Montego Bay, Jamaica.

About the book
“How To Say Babylon” is a memoir documenting the upbringing of Safiya Sinclair under the uncompromising Rastafarian leadership of her father. With dashes of poetry, history and perspectives from various family members, this thoughtful and forgiving book reads as an expressive novel.
