Shitolian is a plea to America, an anthem for the oppressed. It is a collection of honest, captivating poetry that gives voice to inexpressible feelings and the triumphs and disappointments of living. In poems filled with intense emotion, Persaud applies a perceptive eye and colorful language to his work as he reflects upon politics, religion, philosophy, coming of age, and lost dreams. Daring the reader to accept him on his own terms, he reveals his feelings openly, declaring pain and joy with ardor as he arrives at the happy, bittersweet, or painful conclusions of life’s journeys.
