“From crushed bodies and crushed nouns, Kirun Kapur has composed an utterly original book. Unsparing, un-selfpitying, these poems make an imaginative whole from Hindu mythology, confessions from a hotline for sexual abuse, meditations on a friend’s mortal illness, and the poet’s private pain. Kapur makes a masterful style from the edges of experience where ‘the soul, whatever it is, struggles to articulate.’” —Rosanna Warren. Buy this book from our affiliate Bookshop.org.
