In this evocative collection of poetry, flash memoir and sketches, Margaret Mascarenhas challenges still prevalent myths about romantic love, treating it as a medical emergency, whose obsessive nature transcends gender and sexual orientation. This is a body of work that also subtly conveys the intimate and visceral traffic between text and image and, in the process, asserts the curative and restorative powers of writing and art. About the Author Margaret Mascarenhas is a writer, editor, teacher and independent curator of American and Indian origin. She is the author of the diasporic novel Skin (Penguin India, Broadway Books), The Disappearance of Irene dos Santos (Grand Central, Hachette USA). She was founding director of the Goa Centre for the Arts until last year, and is currently on its advisory board. Although she has been writing poetry and sketching for twenty years as part of journaling practice, this is her first published collection.
