Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0968634214, Paperback)

Love is rich like the sea--distant, painful, explosive, lyrical and sensually alive. In Liquid Love and Other Longings, poet and writer Norman G. Kester bares his soul and paints amour passionately, examining the powerful influence of the sea on life and love. Desire runs deep like flaming rivers of fire and death. In pleasureful and painful love poems that are haunting and astonishing in depth, power and language, Mr. Kester's sea of longing is a philosophical exploration of love and a metaphor for his native South Africa. His writing speaks boldly of the continuing impact of colonialism. Written in an age of uncertainty yet hope, Liquid Love and Other Longings is a delicate work of the heart. It is rich in memory and meaning, weaving intricate lives from sea to shore, from people to people and probes the vibrancy and uniqueness of race, identity, exile and nationhood within a new century of creative possibility.
