(Nanton, Philip) Philip Nanton was born in St Vincent & the Grenadines. He lived for many years in England has lived in Barbados since 2000. He has presented programs for BBC radio and his work has appeared in Caribbean journals and literary magazines. His book, Island Voices from St Christopher & the Barracudas, was published in 2014.  Canouan Suite and Other Pieces (Papillote Press) is a gorgeous new book from Philip Nanton with art to complement the text. As Stewart Brown, co-editor of the Oxford Book of Caribbean Poetry, says: “Readers of Philip Nanton’s Island Voices [also published by Papillote Press] will be familiar with his storyteller’s ear but Canouan Suite and Other Pieces gives us a sense of Nanton as a more complex, serious and accomplished writer than perhaps we had realized.”
