    Langaa RPCIG 2013; US$ 18.05

    This collection dissects post-independence Cameroon as a representative postcolonial junction. The history that assists in the writing of the poems is a necessary background to understand the dislocated vision of an erstwhile independent territory.

  • Zwischentöneby Gunter E. Grimm

    Tectum Verlag 2015; US$ 18.76

    Wie keine andere literarische Gattung lebt die Lyrik von "Zwischentönen" - von Nuancen, Abstufungen, feinen Übergängen, Abtönungen.

Grimm stellt einzelne, für die Entwicklung... more...
