One thought on “Joop Bersee

  1. I am adding my email conversation with Joop Bersee in a new book. It was published as part of the Arupathu African Kavithakasl( Sixty African poems), a translation of sixty poems by the poet. I hope he is fine and well. I hope he will write more and more and will be recognized through out our planet.
