Book Culture, New York: A Reading With David Austell & Yuyutsu Sharma

Join us at Book Culture on 112th as David Austell & Yuyutsu Sharma read from their latest poetry books, The Tin ManGaruda & New Poems of Astral PlanesQuaking Cantos: Nepal Earthquake PoemsA Blizzard in My Bones: New York Poems on Friday, October 26th at 7pm.

Quaking Cantos is the creative response of a world-renowned Himalayan poet to the earthquakes that shook Nepal in 2015, killing thousands and leaving more than a million people homeless, vulnerable to the ravages of the harsh Himalayan environment. In the aftermath of the earthquakes, his North and Central American reading tours suspended, Yuyutsu returns to Nepal to bear witness to the devastation the “cosmic commotion” has caused in his own Himalayan home.

A Blizzard in my Bones: New York Poems is a brilliant and groundbreaking new work focusing on the “first city of the world” by the internationally acclaimed Himalayan poet, Yuyutsu Sharma. Reminiscent of F.G. Lorca, Allen Ginsberg, Frank O’ Hara and Carl Sandburg, the poems constitute Sharma’s reflections on what it means for a Himalayan poet to transform to a new creation, a New Yorker.

Nirala Launches American Poet Diane Frank’s photography book on Nepal–Letters from a Sacred Mountain Place : A Journey through the Nepal Himalayas to Celebrate Poetry Month, 2018

Letters from a Sacred Mountain Place: A Journey through the Nepal Himalayas
Photographs and Text by Diane Frank
ISBN 81-8250-095-8 2018 Hard Cover pp 144

Walk with Diane Frank, poet, and novelist, on a 400-mile trek in the Nepal Himalayas. With photographs and her beautifully written narrative, she will take you to many Sacred Mountain Places. You will trek on mountain trails around Annapurna, with an ascent of 17,800 feet to Thorong La, and anoint your spirit in the sacred fountains of Muktinath. You will climb the Everest trail with astounding views of the mountains and go on pilgrimage to Buddhist temples and monasteries. The rushing water of sacred rivers will sing to your imagination. With each step of your journey, you will be transformed by the magic of the mountains.

“Letters from a Sacred Mountain Place captures the wide-eyed wonder of Diane Frank’s travels through Nepal, prior to the 1990 Democracy Revolution and the decades of upheaval that followed. She has composed a poetic homage to a place and culture that forever changed all who experienced it — and that still awakens newcomers to their inner journey.”

~ Jeff Greenwald, author of Shopping for Buddhas

Diane Frank’s Letters from a Sacred Mountain Place evokes the citadels of silence that define the essence of the Himalayas. The strength of the book rests in her ecstatic recollection of the minute details of the mountain world and her humble encounters with the beautiful people of the high Himalayas. The glory of idyllic life enjoyed during her treks in 1988 and 1989 has become a thing of the past, thanks to the merciless encroachment of the Western world and homegrown greed of senseless politicians in Nepal.

~ Yuyutsu Sharma, Himalayan Poet, & Author, Annapurna Poems and Quaking Cantos: Nepal Earthquake Poems

Nirala News– American poet David Austell’s The Tin Man to be the first of five Poetry-Book Releases to celebrate the Poetry Month, 2018

Nirala to celebrate Poetry Month by launching 5 new books by 5 American Poets in April, The first one, American poet David Austell’s The Tin Man now out and available on Amazon
https://www.amazon.com/dp/B07CJTDLLK

The Tin Man, by distinguished American poet and educationist, David B. Austell, is a moving homage to a little known but charismatic figure in the Christian biblical narratives, Saint Joseph of Arimathea.  Completed after six years of research and writing, The Tin Man is based on a myriad of primary and secondary source materials including canonical texts, apocrypha, religious traditions, church history, medieval literature, and folklore. The Tin Man is a grand narrative poem in epic style regarding the key intersections of Joseph of Arimathea’s life both with Pontius Pilate, Roman Governor of Palestine, and with the strange and charismatic Jesus of Nazareth. The poem explores the experiences of a dramatically flawed man, and the transmutation of his inner being in the presence of the Numinous.

Joseph of Arimathea appears as a key figure in the “passion narratives,” those sections of the four Christian Gospels that focus on the trial and death of Jesus in Jerusalem immediately prior to the celebration of the Jewish Passover in 33 A.D. It is here that we learn of Joseph’s status in the community as a wealthy man, a secret follower of Jesus, and a member of the high council of Jerusalem. It is also here that we read of Joseph’s unenviable task in the interment of the maverick rabbi who many believed to be the Messiah, the Son of the Living God.  In the apocryphal gospels and later writings, Joseph’s influential role in the early years of the Christian Church is brought to light.  For the first time, we are introduced to Joseph of Arimathea as a member of the Davidian royal family, the uncle of the Blessed Virgin Mary, and the great-uncle of Jesus.  Later in the Vulgate, Joseph is referred to as NobilisDecurio (Noble Decurion). Thereafter he becomes the Roman citizen, the provincial Senator, and the legendary Roman superintendent of tin mining operations in the southwestern shires of England.  In the final analysis, The Tin Man explores the life-changes that transform an arrogant and troubled expatriate into a Christian saint, missionary, evangelist, and church leader.

The Tin Man is the epic song of Joseph of Arimathea.

“The figure of Joseph of Arimathea has always been dear to English hearts because of the age-old tradition, linked not only with Cornwall but also with Glastonbury, that he travelled here himself…Anyone reading this work will feel a great debt of gratitude to David Austell…The writing is full of music and it is music that leads us to the amazing figure of ‘The Tin Man’ so that we journey with him through history as pilgrims.”

-from the Introduction by the Very Reverend Dr. Robert A. Willis,  Dean of Canterbury Cathedral, England

Very compelling…an immense work…the poems are lit with primary passion, which is everything, of course.

Christian Wiman, Poet and Senior Lecturer in Religion and Literature, Yale Divinity School
The Tin Man is an elegant wrestle with history and meaning.” 

Eliza Griswold, Journalist, author, and poet, The Tenth Parallel, Wide Awake Field, I am the Beggar of the World

The Tin Man is a meticulously researched and masterfully written account of Joseph of Arimathea. David Austell weaves prose and poetry, history and imagination, humor and gravity into an exquisite, seamless story that is both fascinating and a pleasure to read.  David’s craft of poetry and prose here is exquisite. “

Sholeh Wolpe, Poet, Dramatist, and Performance Artist

The Tin Man is a fascinating collage of poetry, theology, history, epic, meditation, and engagement with large ideas. It’s a wonderful book and unlike any other I’ve ever read.

Kevin Prufer, Poet and Professor of Creative Writing, University of Houston

Enlightening and engaging…this marvelous read introduces you to the saint evolved from a lifetime of adventures as a soldier, senator and merchant.   David Austell’s tantalizing tale, pulled from the mists of time, places flesh-and-blood on one of the central, but little-known characters in the chronicles of Jesus Christ.  These incomparable, extraordinary narrative-poems shed a light on the heretofore unexplored Joseph of Arimathea as a man who sought an ordinary existence but came to believe and live the missionary life of The Way.

The Reverend Canon Matthew T. L. Corkern,, Rector, Calvary Church, Summit, New Jersey

American poet, Otis Kidwell Burger’s fabulous book, Cats, Love & Other Surprises in Nirala Series

 Cats, Love & Other Surprises by Otis Kidwell Burger

Illustrations by Katherine Burger

ISBN : 978-8182500891 2017 Hardback pp 65

Cats, Love & Other Surprises is an astonishing book of poems by 93-year old Otis Kidwell Burger, of New York City. Both a poet and a sculptor, Otis delights in the company of her cats in verse both whimsical and lyrical. Other poems reflect on a long life divided between New York City and a country cabin in the New England woods; these explore family memories, the vagaries of love, and the natural world, to which she is connected by both scientific curiosity (she was a zoology major at Cornell College) and philosophical questioning. The poems traverse territories from the quotidian to the metaphysical; from rejoicing in the return of a lost cat “sitting on my lap purring/and stitching us together again/with her tiny, needle-sharp claws” to imagining a prehistoric woman artist sitting on the floor of her cave, “whittling a bit of mammoth bone. /I don’t know yet if it will be/A horse or a bison. Prey. Food. Perhaps a charm for the hunter./Or perhaps a cave bear, immense, terrible./Death itself, but made small and manageable. A protection.” Solemn, yet also witty and accessible, these are American poems of great strength and a quirky animistic sensibility. They are also poignant. Musing on her unmatched “bachelor” socks, the poet imagines their lost, significant others and why they stepped out, never to return. In another poem, she mourns that “the darkness falls/And tucks us in our homes/No more telephones/No more visiting/No more conversations/No more sleepwalking, or I/Would be five miles away soon/And in bed with you.” Delightfully illustrated by her own daughter, Katherine Burger, this is a majestic little gift from a marvellous mother/daughter team.

American writer and artist Otis Kidwell Burger was born in 1923 in Staten Island, NY, and has lived in Greenwich Village since 1932. She graduated from Cornell University and married Knox Breckenridge Burger in 1946; they had two daughters, Neall and Katherine.

Her published work includes: An Interesting Condition, a novel; The String That Went Up, a children’s book; poetry in The New Yorker, Good Housekeeping, and Gourmet Magazine; science fiction in Galaxy and Astounding magazines. She’s written book reviews for The New York Times, Book of the Month Club; The Village Voice, and Kirkus Services, as well as articles in the Villager. All of the poems included in the book, except The Stag, were written in the last two years

Katherine Burger, Otis’ second daughter, is a playwright and artist. She and her husband Randy live in the Hudson Valley.

March Release: Word Has It: Poems by distinguished American poet, Ruth Danon

 


 

 

 

ISBN 81-8250-097-4 2018 Paperback pp 85

Word Has It, by American poet, Ruth Danon takes on the unease that has accompanied the troubling politics that have created so much disturbance in the last few years. The book launches the reader into a journey marked by foreboding and innuendo. In the first section the speaker proceeds on an uneasy path while a character named “Word,” referring to herself in the third person, offers acerbic commentary along the way. In the second section the speaker retreats first into the domestic, then to a deeper interiority in which a journey through the rooms of a house embodies a study of various states of consciousness that lead her to the recognition of her role as a poet. By the end of the second section the speaker in ready to leave the interior space and venture into the third section, where she takes on the daunting poetic task of augury. The foreboding of the first section culminates in the violence that has been hinted at all along.

 Danon evokes language as backdrop, as foundation, as scaffolding – a quiet though inexorable landscape in which we witness our most cherished and frightening transformations.. . .
Kristina Marie Darling, editor in chief, Tupelo Press

Ruth Danon gives us one of her most darkly oracular works. . . . .” The poems are acid,ingenious, and unsentimental.
Andrew Levy, editor, Resist Much, Obey Little

. . . Deep and skeptical, natural and magical, melancholic and beautiful, Danon’s oracle makes a truly compelling statement – one to be heeded, one to be savored.                   – Stephen  Massimilla,, author, The Plague Doctor in His Hull Shaped Hat and Cooking with the Muse

Ruth Danon’s extraordinary poems take us directly into states of feeling and perception that are subtle and profound. . . These are necessary poems.                                         –Chase Twichell, author, Horses Where the Answers Should Have Been (winner of Kingsley Tufts Award)
