FROM THE PUBLISHER - Jared Angira says of his collection of poetry: ‘Silent Voices consists of crude voices gasping in the dark, of voices trapped in between despair and existence, of voices caught up in a maze but always seeking to get through. They are voices from rusty tincans of the slums, seeking an outlet into the gay city, they are voices corked up in empty gourds. They are the searching voices that must achieve their goals in a strange silent quietness, quietness that defeats the drums. Yet in themselves the voices are drumbeats, pulsations, heartbeats. They are the yodelling of the slum drums, they are the bugles from ancient limbos, they are the bridge from the past into the present and then into that transparent layer of the future. Some of the voices are everyday voices, even of children thrown by their mothers into latrine pits, some are of progressives caught up in competition and self promotion. Here is a conglomeration of voices.’ Previous Owner's Name Penned In Front, Otherwise Good In Slightly Worn Wrappers. Bookseller Inventory # 18044
