Book of the Week: waiting in silence
Ion Codrescu is perhaps best known for his masterful haiga, but he has had a long and storied career in haiku as well. This bilingual chapbook (‘t schrijverke, 2009) doesn’t fail to include a few haiga as well.
You can read the entire book in the THF Digital Library.
