Description
A SCOTTISH POETRY LIBRARY RECOMMENDATION 2013 ONE OF SUDEEP SEN'S '11 BOOKS OF POETRY TO READ' IN 2015 "None of this is the city. All of it is you." So writes Siddhartha Bose in his new book of experimental poetry - Digital Monsoon. In this follow-up to the acclaimed debut Kalagora, Bose proposes the poet as a twenty-first century beatnik, a ravenous language machine eating up the margins of the city. Dreams trigger extraordinary visions of an apocalyptic London populated by technologised bodies; beat-boxers and graffiti writers as urban oracles; the ghosts of a multicultural city moving through banks and brothels, kebab shops and squat parties. Dispatches from the post-industrial landscapes of the North, and from the poet's hometowns of Mumbai and Kolkata, complete this raw and uncompromisingly modern collection of poems and texts. Composed in Bose's trademark rhythmical, open field style, Digital Monsoon celebrates the dynamism of the urban edgeland in an updated Jazz Age poetic. - REVIEWS "Poems with the sprung dazzle of jazz. Siddhartha Bose makes it new." - JEET THAYIL, AUTHOR OF NARCOPOLIS "Bose succeeds in writing his own modern day mythology of London, borrowing from the stories of old and fusing them with the new techniques and stanzas of the street into a collection of works that take the reader on a breathless thrill-ride, best consumed in a single pulse-lifting sitting." - WASAFIRI - from Amzon
