Jason S Polley has an interesting background. He allocates his time to reading, scuba diving, practicing yoga, and getting tattooed. He currently teaches American Literature and Culture at Hong Kong Baptist University. refrain is a poetry collection of Jason Polley’s adventure into India as a religious study major back to 1997.

A young man arrives in Delhi with a romanticized view of India, a pocketful of outdated maps, and a money belt begging to be stolen. The stories work as a sprawling dramatic monologue. Polley paintes on a large canvas and his brush stroke are fresh, memorable and cutting edge. There is a magic on this book that is “It keeps on begining”.

You are welcome to bring your work to read and share, in any languages.
