First Words is a 2010 Nairobi International Book Fair (NIBF) Literary Awards winning collection of poems that would ring, reverberate and ricochet long after you have heard them—the inner self seeking your attention and begging to be listened.
First Words addresses a wide range of issues from societal maladies and politics to culture and interpersonal relationships.
These are Vincent de Paul’s first words to the world as he revokes vices, condemns and rights a society he sees doomed to damnation.
Vincent de Paul is the author of ten books, including three collections of flash fiction—Flashes of Vice—and four poetry collections. Twisted Times: Son of Man is his first novel.
He is also a freelance writer, published on several dailies in Kenya, and his poetry has been published in two anthologies in East and West Africa.
He has a diploma in Creative Writing from the Writers Bureau, UK.
