New Book from Tarun Reddy and dMon Publishing Percolates with 200 Haikus about Coffee

Share Article

A new book looks at our fascination with coffee through the use of haiku. Each haiku is written in English and translated into Japanese. There is also a section called "Something to Sip On" with each haiku to give people a sense of the history and popularity of coffee.

"It combines humor, trivia, and imagery into a concise book."

A book from first-time author Tarun Reddy examines the love affair people have with coffee through the Japanese poetry style known as haiku.
The book “Brew-ku: Where Coffee Intersects with Life,” features more than 200 haikus about coffee. Haiku poetry is typically about nature. But Tarun decided to take that style and apply it to his fascination with coffee, which is the most popular beverage in America.

Janie Monares, CEO and Editor-in-Chief of dMon Publishing, LLC said that when Tarun first raised the idea of Brew-ku, she could visualize a creative book that would make people appreciate the importance of coffee in their everyday lives.

“Once I started reading the manuscript, I knew that I needed to publish this book. It combines humor, trivia, and imagery into a concise book. Each page containing a haiku also has it translated into Japanese,” Monares said.

Reddy decided to use the translations as a way to reduce the amount of white space on each page. “I know it’s customary for most poets to let the poems stand alone on each page, but I kept looking at all that white space, and wanted to give readers some added information,” Reddy explains.
At the bottom of each page of poetry, there is a section called “Something to Sip On.” This section contains a combination of statistics, historical information, and word origins to give people a sense of how far coffee has evolved during the past thousand years.
An example from “Brew-ku”:

I’m leaning forward
Ears poised for first rush of air
Let the brewing start!

The print version of the book is available on Amazon (http://www.amazon.com/Brew-Ku-Where-Coffee-Intersects-Life/dp/0985018070/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&qid=1353423589&sr=8-1&keywords=tarun+reddy). The e-book version of Brew-ku will be available early next year. As part of the marketing campaign, there is a Facebook page (http://www.facebook.com/brew-ku) and a Twitter account (https://twitter.com/brewku). Reddy plans to create new haikus and coffee related memes to encourage people who have purchased the book to inform their friends about it.
