Rain in the Attic

Author Name: Shyla C. George | Format: Paperback | Genre : Poetry | Other Details

Shyla George has an eye for detail, lucid memories of childhood, nostalgia for a vanishing world and a pictorial imagination. Her simple poems evoke a world where human beings live in harmony with nature and the rhythms of life and of rain complement each other.

– K. Satchidanandan

There is a varied often subtle and original portfolio of poems. Some of the imagery is beautiful and stark and a number of the poems are charged with sad honest humanity. The natural warmth and acceptance of the speakers of many of these poems gives them a melancholy charm.

– Dr. Rory Waterman, Senior Lecturer in English and Creative Writing, Nottingham Trent University, United Kingdom

Her poetry has a very distinctive voice that is warm, precise, vulnerable and playful. Moreover, her manipulation of reality is often both witty and psychologically interesting.

– Dr. Andrew Taylor FRSA, Senior Lecturer in Creative Writing and English, NTU, UK
