The Adventures of Ibn Opcit is a two-volume mock epic of social satire. Grace, the first volume, is the master song of Ibn Opcit, a Caribbean gardener/poet condemned to die by torture. In a series of jailhouse monologues we hear him descant on justice, on creation, on America, on death and on life after death.
