About the Book refrain recounts the author's travels in India as an inexperienced and sensitive young man. The narrative shows wit, intelligence and a facility with words. The style is experimental and literary; and the fascination of the stories told – short stories in verse presenting the anxieties and misfortunes typical of shoestring traveling, and the culture-shock deriving from visiting a very different culture from ones own – carries the careful reader along. A knack for reading this less-than-conventional fast-paced book, which is at once humorous and nightmarish, passionate and detached, is acquired quickly. About the Author Jason S Polley allocates his time to reading, scuba diving, practicing yoga, and getting tattooed. He began what was to become refrain in early 1997 while backpacking the Indian Subcontinent, but shelved it later that year to devote himself to the study and composition of academic prose. He returned to his lone work of fiction in order to meet the deadline for the 2009 Proverse Prize. Since 1998 he has lived in Guangzhou, Montreal, Bogota, Guayaquil and Hong Kong. He currently teaches American Literature and Culture at Hong Kong Baptist University.
