Postmarked Quarantine – Poems by Kushal Poddar
Kolkata-based writer and visual artist and Ice Floe Press Dispatches from a Pandemic contributor has created an instant classic diary for our times. Each poem represents a ‘day-in-the-life’ of the poet and his family. The full-length book is a complex, humorous and surreal snapshot of life under lockdown during the first and 2nd waves of the global COVID19 pandemic.
We see, perhaps, a glimmer of the wreckage Benjamin’s Angel of History witnessed. Poddar’s Angel of History is we readers, as “We turn back to see us/ walking behind us, and another we running past,/ their heads turned toward the origin.” – Michael Dickel.
There are echoes throughout the book of inheritance and of choosing what we keep from someone we love and how we pass this on. – Sue Finch

A brilliant first chapbook by the award-winning Nigerian-Canadian poet Bola Opaleke, this is a truly heart-rending, complex, sensitive and ferocious body of work about war, loss, hope and migration.

at gods who feed only on dead bodies.
