Besides ten poetry collections and a number of translations from French, Italian, Spanish and more recently Persian, Robin Magowan is the author of an autobiography, Memoirs of a Minotaur, a collection of travel pieces, Improbable Journeys, a critical study of modern pastoral, Narcissus and Orpheus, and two accounts of continental cycle racing.  His Garden of Amazement: Scattered Gems after Sâeb appeared from Longhouse in 2015. He resides on a hilltop above Santa Fe where he wrestles with a large rock garden.

The poet, mystic and philosopher Mirza ‘Abd al-Qader Bidel (1644-1720) is India’s greatest writer in Persian and the last exponent of the innovative Indo-Persian style.  Born in Patna, he lived most of his life in Delhi, serving as a soldier before taking a vow of poverty and becoming a wandering dervish."
