RammelkampsMorePoetry. In Bly, Oregon, in 1945, a pastors pregnant wife is killed by a Japanese balloon bomb. Almost two decades later, that same pastor and his missionary colleagues are kidnapped, by the Viet Cong, from a jungle leprosarium. Rammelkamps ambitious collection of poems circles these events, from multiple perspectives. The fūsen bakudan, or balloon bomb, is an apt metaphor for both the tragedies that are the impetus for this book and our reactions to them--the worst and best that flares up in all of us.--Shelley PuhakCharles Rammelkamps book FŪSEN BAKUDAN features compelling narrative sequences, in different voices, depicting the arc of a tragedy of World War II in Oregon and how, much later, it continues to impact the lives of a group of missionaries in Vietnam.

This volume encompasses love and hope and loss in ways that are sometimes raw and often quite surprising.--Susan Terris
