Product Overview

In this collection, an Anglo-Indian poet offers a fresh approach to conveying the disorienting postcolonial experience, exploring themes of immersion and exposure to achieve an original and often humorous voice. The challenge of living between cultures and without "family hand-me-downs" propels these poems, as many investigate prominent themes in contemporary poetry--identity, cultural migration, and women's changing roles--while unwaveringly providing original insights. Drawing on Eastern and Western myths, this collection blends the power of shared ideas with the experiences of a minority group, providing a unique perspective.
