John Carley's recently-designed four-verse renku format is represented by 60 poems, wherein Carley collaborates with such well-known haikai poets as Hortensia Anderson, Lorin Ford, Carole MacRury, Sandra Simpson, William Sorlien and Sheila Windsor, together with an introduction to the form.

"I have always been impressed by John Carley's knowledge of Japanese linked verse... It is my sincere hope that this new form of linked verse will take root." —Nobuyuki Yuasa, Professor Emeritus, Hiroshima University, and translator of Basho's The Narrow Road to the Deep North and Other Travel Sketches (Penguin Classics, 1966).

"the Little Book of Yotsumonos opens up a world of poetic possibility, sourced by the old, both the Chinese and Japanese poetic traditions, yet fresh and original... I suspect few will be able to read this book without wanting to try and compose a yotsumono themselves." —Sonja Arntzen, Emeritus Professor of East Asian Studies, University of Toronto, and translator of The Kagero Diary and Ikkyu and the Crazy Cloud Anthology.

I ordered it yesterday.  Looking forward to reading it.

Will do!
Maybe share your reaction here and/or with the publisher too, Don?

Hi Norman, Lorin, Sandra...I don't know if anyone else from the authors or publishers visits this forum.

Just wanted to say that I am enjoying every page of The Little Book of Yotsumonos.

Thank you for the magic trip :)

All my best,
Vida (Tzetzka)

Hi Vida. That's great to hear! I'm very proud to have been involved in this project  :D

Lorin Ford

Thanks, Vida, that's very thoughtful of you to comment here. So pleased you're enjoying!  8) I hope you'll be inspired to find a partner and write some Yotsomunos, too.

Like Norman, I'm really chuffed to be part of this project.
