Overview

My Planet of Kites is a rich poetic suite that documents an intimate universe, mixing personal and cultural references in language that is both colourful and humorous. The narrator's reflections on the thrilling, but usually, mundane aspects of everyday life will resonate with anyone that seeks shared dreams of travel, music, books and the presence, real or virtual, of men and women who weave a web of friendships in a world that seems to have no romantic attachments.
