Recommended to Anita by: no one
Shelves: poetry
Hoskote's poetry strides lithely between uniquely Indian connotations to universal constructs that would resonate with poetry-lovers worldwide.

To quote reviewer Agha Shahid Ali, "Hoskote wants discover language, as one would a new chemical in a lab experiment ..."

Startling gems appear almost matter-of-fact as I read.

I will leave you with just one [and not spoil the surprise a good book yields:]

"...lease a little sea to landlocked lips."
