  • Information


Ranging over place, memory and history, Amit Chaudhuri's new collection of poems makes a fresh, spiritual accommodation with the world.

The poems often take their themes from sweets named and eaten, meals remembered, and matches these with meditations on culture, people, time and identity that slowly unfold as much in the mouth as in the mind. And what we discover are the hesitations, assessments and uncertainties that finally make us fully human.

Those quiet moments of revelation and rediscovery that create our lives as much as reflect their circumstances, locating and healing us in their intimate pleasures.
