Book Spotlight - 52:Loves - One For Each Week [A Collection of Stories and Poems]
52:Loves is an international collection of short stories & poems, one for each week of the year. [illustrated]. No matter which country, or what genre, the authors are united in their creativity and passion for love.
Included writers are from Austria, Australia, China, France, Germany, Guyana, India, Ireland, Spain, the UK, the USA, and Zimbabwe. Most are published writers. Of special interest to us here at RML is a friend of the site, Ndaba Sibanda who has three entries in the book, Tiger Cub Love, The Tongue And The Saliva and River Love
In between stories and extracts of novels, you’ll encounter exquisite poetry: verses about Malaysia, Ndaba’s ‘Tiger Cub Love’; Charlotte’s ‘Boo’, Cherry Smyth captures summer: In someone else’s kitchen that hot July, I went to touch you… At Week 25, you’ll find Sandra A. Agard’s poem about her mother. At Week 40, you’ll find Nalini of The Punjab: The interplay of orange and indigo…
Read ‘The Revolt of Grass’, literary fiction by David T. K. Wong, or science fiction by the quirky Thomas, and Hope, and discover the outrageous ‘Meet Roderick’ – a story guaranteed to make the ladies cross! There’s the flipside too – the nervous love of two women, the green grass that makes three in more wonderful poetry.
There’s the guitar-playing coffee-junkie, the loyal dog, a couple wed under a tree, a man wises up. You’ll find alcoholics, a man in the bath, a wild musician, a great aunt, a faithful amah in south China, a warrior, ‘Another Closed Door’ by prolific Guest Writer Gerard Guix, a bewildered unborn baby, nostalgia, and much much more…
There is sex among the 52 Weeks, but we’re not going to tell you where to find it.
You also don’t have to wait 52 weeks to tell us which one is your favourite story or poem. You might check out Week 52 right now: Katy’s ‘Everything I Know About Magnificence’ – boy meets girl inside a cave.
