“Ghazals For The Friend” wins Amazon Best Poetry Book of 2014 Award!!!!!!
Update, 11/22/2014: This astonishing news may be either a hoax or a fantastic mistake. Jeff Bezos won’t answer my repeated phone calls. Stay tuned.
Update, 12/1/2014: I wasn’t invited to Jeff Bezos’ secret and exclusive literary convocation- all expenses paid, and I believe this is the bitter truth: my award was nothing but a hoax! This is so mean, unspeakably mean. And I was so hopeful that Ghazals For The Friend, the third best collection of ghazals composed in the English language, would rise from its present best selling Amazon ranking of 2,226,511 at least a few digits.
