Calcutta: Writers Workshop, 1982. 125p., hardcover, colorful fabric-bound boards. Inscribed by author.
Poems by the Indian writer who lived in the US and Canada for a decade (and published a best-selling organization textbook). Many poems have a prose afterword explaining the circumstances of their composition; for example, after the short piece "American TV" he writes that it was inspired by a return to the US after several years. "I thought I would get a quickie view of how the nation was by watching its television. The sleek barbarity was still there, the neon spring in the depths of winter. In that moment of my discontent I forgot that even Prometheus works for show biz."
