Reviews

"This powerful and endlessly mysterious collection of poems is a book of fables, of spells, of revised narratives, and of realigned songs, brightly lifted above our bodies by music that is as unpredictable as it is marvelous. The lyricism is everywhere apparent as Sumita Chakraborty addresses us, our bodies and their stories, our planet, and our sense of time itself. . . . All one can do is repeat: this is an endlessly compelling book. Bravo."--Ilya Kaminsky, author of Deaf Republic
