Paperback: $16.95

Born in the mid '60s and having grown up in the United States with some stays abroad, Raj Dronamraju has borne witness to the pains of tedious labor, the travesty of a majority of outsiders too often... More > forgotten by media culture, and the delights of the prefect grilled cheese sandwich. Currently teaching English at a university in Malaysia where he lives with his wife, Raj now offers us his marvelous book: THE RETURN OF THE MAGNIFICENT NINNY AND OTHER POEMS. This work marks a critical self-examination with an attempt to forge a sane perspective in an at times almost hopeless, possibly mad world—but it also finds promise in learning to improve perceptive powers; demonstrating to us how we can refine the soul rather than accumulate material and mental baggage on a trip to who we really and already are. This profound book of 50 interrelated poems is filled with humor in the face of despair with much wisdom in and in-between the lines.< Less

John Constable was English painter, ranked with Turner as one of the greatest British landscape artists. After spending some years working in the Picturesque tradition of landscape and the manner of... More > Gainsborough, Constable developed his own original treatment from the attempt to render scenery more directly and realistically; he thought that 'No two days are alike, nor even two hours; neither were there ever two leaves of a tree alike since the creation of the world', and: 'The sound of water escaping from mill dams, willows, old rotten planks, slimy posts and brickwork. I love such things. These scenes made me a painter.' He never went abroad, and his finest works are of the places he knew and loved best, particularly Suffolk and Hampstead, where he lived from 1821. Often completing primary sketches prior to starting a large canvas, Constable would draw on the inspiration nature gave him and tries to capture a moment in time, testing his composition first in sketches.< Less
