Reviews

"The thoughts and insights in the poems are that of a very perceptive, educated, and skilled writer who knows his subjects and who seem to have spent a significant amount of time perfecting his writing. No doubt, this work is a voice of tranquility and unmistakable originality. The writer is applauded for the extraordinary collection. .." --Indo-Caribbean Diaspora News

"Reading Sasenarine Persaud's newest collection, Monsoon on the Fingers of God, is like stepping inside a clock and running a thumb along each gear and dial in order to better understand time. [. ..] Persaud somehow balances righteous anger with grief and heartbreak in each poem, dodging deftly from era to era to demonstrate just how closely history repeats itself. After reading this book, readers will not return to their own cities in their own present moments unchanged. " --World Literature Today
