Reviews

Editor Martin De Mello talks about The Suitcase Book of Love Poems:
“Suitcase Love Poems is packed with love: UK Asian takes on love, odes from Egyptian times, Shakespeare sonnets recut for urban times, black on black love black on white love, love beyond colour, kama sutra style stuff, agonies of love, foreplay of love, afterplay of love, first love, last love and
the stages in between. The only thing it doesn't have is the Valentines Card stuff. For that you need to go to a card shop.”
