Henri Cole

A bold new collection of poems of feral beauty and intense vulnerability The poems in Henri Cole's ninth book, Nothing to Declare, explore life and need and delight. Each poem starts up from its own unique occasion and is then conducted through surprising (sometimes unnerving) and self-steadying domains. The result is a daring, delicate, unguarded, and tender collection. After his last three books—Touch, Blackbird and Wolf, and Middle Earth—in which the sonnet was a thrown shape and not merely a template, Cole's buoyant new poems seem trim and terse, with a first-place, last-ditch resonance. In their sorrowful richness, they combine a susceptibility to sensuousness and an awareness of desolation. With precise reliability of detail, a supple wealth of sound, and a speculative truthfulness, Cole transforms the pain of experience into the keen pleasure of expressive language. Nothing to Declare is a rare work, necessary and durable, light in touch but with just enough weight to mark the soul.

"I reserve my 'Top Scores' for exceptional work, to give them freely would be to devalue and waste them. finally, a book worth the wait," writes Kate Fox of Heartland Reviews. "Mr. Kraus' tale of smuggler Thomas Breck is a work of literary art. His characters, plot, setting, and dialogue are all top notch." "Cleverly and artistically written. Nothing To Declare is not your ordinary mystery novel. It's a thriller with first-class traits," writes Jennie Bev, The Book Review Club. "The murder, international underworld, unsolved crime and enigmatic ambience create an unforgettable setting. A mystery novel that is a literary piece in itself."

Nothing to Declare traces the story of Mila, a victim of the poverty of post-WWII Finland. Sold by her mother, sent alone across the world to a seemingly better life, she is adopted into a family ruled by a malevolent woman who makes Mila's growing-up years a living hell. The book alternates between Mila's life in America and her beloved brother's life in Finland where he fights a deadly disease. An uplifting story of the bonds of family and hope. Forces the reader to keep turning the pages, searching for the next event. A life-sized painting. Layer by layer you discover darkness, a ray of light. The colors, the smells, the past and present, come to life. I feel powerfully connected to the little girl. Her pain makes me weep, her spirit is strong. Marianne Friberg, Finnish artist: hemp weaving, metal sculpture. A penetrating psychological portrait of the bond between brother and sister. Frightened, isolated, Mila fights fate's cruelty as her brother struggles for his life. Their resolve, not only to endure life's hardships, but to transcend them, is remarkable and compelling. Fay E. Kagan, M.D., Child Psychiatrist, Los Angeles, CA Young people lived with the shadow of death during Finland's tuberculosis epidemic. Some found a way to live, and to love, in the midst of despair. Powerful. Teems with life, determination, hope. Raimo A. Andersson, Finland

Rabi Thapa

In the title story; Bikram achieves his most urgent middle-class dream; to emigrate to London. Young phoren-returned Nepalis hang out in the bars of Thamel in ‘Night Out in Kathmandu’; sharing tables with those who did not—could not—go. They talk about pretty much the same things: visas; music; booze; the impossibility of getting laid in the city. There are foreigners too; trekking on the usual routes; smoking cheap grass and looking for their inner selves. The Maobadis loom large in ‘Home for Dashain’; wreaking vengeance on behalf of the people. Though rarely mentioned in the city; they are ever present; invoked by the sad pole dancers in the more risqué bars and the transvestites pounding the streets looking for customers. And in 'Aryaghat'; a Kathmandu family lays to rest the ashes of a Nepali boy who has committed suicide in Alabama. The sixteen stories in Nothing to Declare are passionate; pensive and at times disenchanted. They mirror the experiences of the middle-class youth of Kathmandu as they build lives; trying to make sense—and pushing the limits—of a rapidly changing but ever-conservative society. Vividly imagined and deeply felt; this is a brilliant debut.
