Offshoots 11 – Published 2011

 


Some comments about previous volumes:

“Like Ovid on the shores of the Black Sea but envisioning Rome, or Jean Rhys in Paris but recalling the West Indies, writers far from their homes have written about what they have left and lost, what they will never lose, and what they see in new worlds around them. Geneva is rich with such writers, and Offshoots gives us their voices:many-tongued, many-cultured, bearing fresh visions and carrying us far”

“It can be said that all literature is regional. Hardy, Dickens, Faulkner are all regional writers loyal to one place. And Geneva is a place too, albeit one of cross-currents – between home and abroad, regional and international. The stories and poems that make up this collection embody that tension. They have atmosphere as Geneva has atmosphere.
