A Review of Tonight

Rumjhum BiswasOne of the contributors to Tonight, An Anthology of World Love Poetry (Poets Printery, 2008), Rumjhum Biswas, has just posted a short review of the collection as a whole:

“Tonight”, a sleek volume of love poetry was launched at the World Poetry Festival in Oslo in September this year. I received my copies today and loved it immediately; not necessarily because two of my own love poems are in it!

This anthology of love poems is the ‘creation’ of a person who I call the mad doctor of poetry – Dr. Amitava Mitra (http://www.amitabhmitra.com/). His very busy schedule at a hospital in East London, South Africa cannot keep him away from his twin loves for art and poetry. Not only does he write exquisite poetry himself (http://poetsprintery.bookslive.co.za/blog/2008/10/02/a-slow-train-to-gwalior-a-poetry-film/), but also supports poetry and poets through the Poets’ Printery press. The two other people involved in compiling this sleekly done anthology are Victoria Valentine, the publisher of Skyline Publishers and Glory S. Franklin, a Chennai based writer and moderator of the writers’ group – Glorioustimes.

A Million thanks for all your support.

Amitabh
