The Love of an Apple Tree, Cho, Yoon-Ho
3 Cho, Yoon-Ho The Love of an Apple Tree
Merrick, New York, USA Cross-Cultural Communications in cooperation with Korean Expatriate Literature 2014 089304993X / 9780893049935 First Paperback New Poetry 5 1/2 x 8 1/2 
This is a first in the Korean Bilingual Poetry Series #1, published by Cross-Cultural Communications in cooperation with Korean Expatriate Literature. "The poems of Yoon-Ho Cho are delicate, detailed, and strike the reader with their sensitive beauty. The opening poem, 'Apple Tree,' illustrates in itself the wonderful qualities of Korean poetry, which―for me at least―are an artist’s eye for focused observation, an arresting and honest accessibility, and depths as deep as the shining mirror of a well. I love Yoon-Ho Cho’s poet’s veneration of nature and the controlled conciseness of his creative vision" —Peter Thabit Jones Poet-Editor-Publisher, The Seventh Quarry Press, Swansea, Wales, UK "From the grist of Yoon Ho Cho’s spiritual mill come wisdoms spliced from the glass of winter’s ice, like finely cut diamonds revealing their multi-faceted prisms of Nature’s deeper truths—nourishing in their innocence, awesome in their profound simplicity. As we experience Mr. Cho’s poetry, we journey hand in hand with Eros in our innate need to transform. Thank you, Mr. Cho, for this grand selection of poems,for they have sprouted a new emerald limb on my tree of life." —Carolyn Mary Kleefeld Poet-Artist, Big Sur, California

Vision Test, Kyung-Nyun Kim Richards
11 Kyung-Nyun Kim Richards Vision Test
Santa Fe Spring, CA & Merrick, NY Korean Expatriate Literature & Cross-Cultural Communications 2016 089304220X / 9780893042202 First Paperback New Perfect bound 5 1/2 x 8 1/2 Gianpiero Actis To the memory of my mother Lady Ohm, Bong Soon
Visiont Test is a bilingual (Korean-English) poetry book, #2 in the Korean Bilingual Poetry Series co-published by the Korean Expatriate Literature Group and Cross-Cultural Communications. “Kyung-Nyun Richards’ poetry is powered by her integrity, her honesty and her wisdom, all of which exemplify her strengths and her delicacy. One senses a real experience of her knowledge of life’s ‘dismays and rainbows’, to quote Dylan Thomas, in her writings. For me, one cannot separate the woman from the poet, the poet from the woman: they are one. Her accessibility is a bonus and her poetic voice rings true. One finds a calmness and a warmth in a poet like her.” ―Peter Thabit Jones Poet, dramatist, editor & publisher of The Seventh Quarry
