“Like the name implies, Memoir of Crushed Petals is indeed a book suffused with sorrow, heartbreak and the skirmishes of childhood trauma and abuse. What is utterly remarkable about this poetry collection is that it lends voice to a certain kind of unapologetic vulnerability which is uncommon in a debut. Jacob has succeeded in using lyrical verses to talk about topical issues like mental health stigma and acceptance for multi-spirituality which are often sidelined in most contemporary African nations. This is indeed a poet to watch as Jacob has shown that poetry can exist even beautifully on the page too.

“There are words screaming within these words as every line is laced with ancient wisdom and served by the contemporary outlook. Sometime- in this journey for a book- one is urged to go out of breath, willingly; and in other times, it gives succor by challenging the ‘minimal’ pains in life. It’s one book that hurts to be ended not for the shallow-looking blasphemy but for the incompleteness which indicates the blessings of God upon the writer.

“Somehow, this collection of poems throbs in me. Somehow, this collection questions me. Somehow, Pamilerin has successfully brought my pains to my face. This is genius work.
– Adedayo Adeyemi Agarau, author For Boys Who Went
“In these days when everyone has a go at poetry and any cluster of words can be tagged a poem, it is hard to find poets who stay true to the art’s traditions and yet manage to be innovative in their forms, metaphors and messages. Pamilerin is one of them, and his collection will delight you – if you love good poetry, that is.
