Fiction

In this, her first collection of poetry since the award- winning Countries of the Body, Tishani Doshi returns to the body as a central theme, but extends beyond the corporeal to challenge the more metaphysical borders of space and time. These new poems are powerful meditations born on the joineries of life and death, union and separation, memory and dream, where lovers speak to each other across the centuries, and daughters wander into their mothers? childhoods. As much about loss as they are about reclamation, Doshi?s poems guide us through an ?underworld of longing and deliverance?, making the exhilarating claim that through the act of vanishing, we may be shaped into existence again. About the Author Tishani Doshi is a writer and dancer of Welsh-Gujarati descent. In 2006, she won the Forward Poetry Prize (best first collection) for her book, Countries of the Body. She is also the recipient of an Eric Gregory Award (2001), and winner of the All-India Poetry Competition (2005). Her first novel, The Pleasure Seekers (2010), was shortlisted for the Hindu Fiction Prize, longlisted for the Orange Prize, and translated into several languages.
