Katmandu, Katmandu by von Satis Shroff
Satis Shroff’s anthology is about a poet caught between upheavals in two countries, Nepal and Germany, where maoists and skin-heads are trying to undermine democratic values, religious and cultural life. Satis Shroff writes political poetry, in German and English, about the war in Nepal (My Nepal, Quo vadis?), the sad fate of the Nepalese people (My Nightmare, Only Sagarmatha Knows), the emergence of neo-fascism in Germany (Mental Molotovs, The Last Tram to Littenweiler) and love (The Broken Poet, Without Words, About You), women’s woes (Nirmala, Bombay Brothel). His bicultural perspective makes his poems rich, full of awe and at the same time heartbreakingly sad. In writing ‘home,’ he not only returns to his country of origin time and again, he also carries the fate of his people to readers in the West, and his task of writing is a very important one in political and social terms. His true gift is to invent Nepalese metaphors and make them accessible to the West through his poetry.

‘Through Nepalese Eyes’ By von Satis Shroffis is about the journey of a young Nepalese woman to Germany to meet her brother, who lives with his German wife and daughter in an allemanic town named Freiburg. It is a travelogue written by a sensitive, modern British public-school educated man. He describes the two worlds: Asia and Europe and the people he meets. There is a touch of sadness when his sister returns to her home in the foothills of the Himalayas.

Maine author Philip Harris has received “The LiFE Award: Literature for Environment” for his newly released book, Raping Louisiana: A Diary of Deceit. A resident of Somerville, Maine, this is Mr. Harris’ fourth published book since the summer of 2006.

Raping Louisiana: A Diary of Deceit (ISBN: 1-59431-495-0 paper, 1-59431-541-8 ebook ) by Philip F. Harris, with Stephen Burgoyne was published by Write Words, Inc. ebooksonthe.net, and Cambridge Books. The book is a non-fictional account of clean-up efforts after the ecological disaster caused in New Orleans and surrounding areas by Hurricane Katrina in 2005. This story puts a human face on an area that was raped by nature and then deceived by its government. Based upon the diary of a truck driver by the name of Stephen Burgoyne, we see a first hand account of the daily routine, the challenges and the bureaucratic ineptness that still plagues the residents of Louisiana. Steve tells a story in his diary entries that is far removed from the "official accounts" of government agencies and “spin doctors."

This is Phil's fourth book published since 2006. His third book, Jesus Taught It, Too: The Early Roots Of The Law Of Atraction which was released by Avatar Publication on August 1st. His second novel, A Maine Christmas Carol was released by Cambridge Books late winter, 2007. Phone: 207-549-5339, E-mail: sundiskhermit@yahoo.com
