Born in India, Usha has a unique take on cross-cultural experiences, and the poems express both her love of the Isle of Man, her grasp of its culture and her holding on to her Indian roots. Usha is an award winning poet of considerable status, and she is currently teaching English in one of the island’s High schools.
The collection is being sponsored by the Isle of Man Arts Council and Culture Vannin and is due for release in February 2014 as part of the Island of Culture project.
I welcome this exciting and long overdue debut collection from a talented British Indian/Manx writer. Usha Kishore’s poems are richly multicultural, erudite, acutely observing and enjoyable.
