Renée Sarojini Saklikar’s fourth book, Bramah and The Beggar Boy, will be published by Nightwood Editions. Ten years in the making, and with early appearances in journals, including The Capilano Review, Tripwire and The Rusty Toque, and chapbooks published by above/ground, Nomados, Nous-zot presses, the book features Bramah, the locksmith and her apprentice, The Beggar Boy, time-travelling to help survivors in a world ravaged by climate change. Kerry Gilbert says,” verse is the perfect choice for this sci-fi epic.” Bill Richardson says, Bramah and the Beggar Boy is a journey of rare and rewarding discovery.” And Maria Reva says, Renée Sarojini Saklikar has invented a world that feels at once ancient and futuristic, shining a light on our fraught present.”
