DEBJANI AT Abbeydale Ind Hamlet 041


 About I WAS THAT WOMAN A new voice has arrived with a great deal of important subject-matter and a new way of saying it.... Here is a book that breathes an all-or-nothing internationalism, that contains (but isn't contained by) a phenomenal range of diction, that eschews the DIY-poetry kit and replaces it with a voice of rare originality.... Chatterjee manages to write compassionate poems in which unification of what can only be called 'world ideas' is paramount. It is a fascinating process, reminding one of Montale or Elytis.... One of the best small press poetry books I've seen. - David Morley, NAWE News Debjani Chatterjee's first collection draws us in to the splendour of her Indian background and variegated travels. She is a persuasive guide, street-smart in several cultures, well aware of feminine versatility, yet capable of being fierce when opposed. - Bill Turner, Poetry Review This collection of poems is breathtaking.... Debjani Chatterjee's poems are rich with knowledge of the culture, literature and language of East and West.... She moves easily from long and complex poems, rich in ideas, to poems which are distillations of thought and feeling." - Jo Alberti, Writing Women


[Namaskar] is full of lively poems which warmly embrace her Indian and British cultures.... The poems are richly allusive... and move with ease between elegant description, well-developed ideas and keenly expressed feeling. Chatterjee's breadth of scope is noteworthy. This book will delight her existing admirers and gain its author new ones. - Kate Keogan, PN Review 166


Here is an impressive collection of poems, with each writer an accomplished poet.... Debjani Chatterjee manages, without imposing, to close the gap between reader and writer.... A rich collection of four of the country's most imaginative voices. - Susi Miller, Artscene

Debjani Chatterjee writes lively, cross-cultural poems with effective resonances. She can be very funny and sharply critical at the same time. - Jeffery Wheatley in Northern Lights

About A LITTLE BRIDGE A little bridge of poems, a wondrous fusion of Indian, Pakistani and Wyre Forestian poetic culture.... A spirited collaboration - and the poems are excellent.... This book travels far and wide and deep into places and people. - Chris Meade, Director of The Poetry Society


Turning an assured eye on both India and England... Chatterjee achieves her own hegemony... in these poised and charming works. - Vic Allen, Artscene
