Dec 16 - Robert Bohm’s new book of poetry ‘What the Bird Tattoo Hides’



Robert Bohm has spent the last 45 years partly staying in India – in the village of Vijayanagara in Karnataka – and partly in the US. Married to Suman, an Indian, he has seen from close quarters and lived the Indian way of rural life. This collection of poems is a testimony to his keen sense of observation as well as his sensitivity as a poet. The noted poet K Satchidanandan comments in his foreword: “Bohm’s What the Bird Tattoo Hides is a poetry of witness at its best. In these poems and some very perspective prose pieces, he combines extraordinary observation with genuine understanding.”
