The Meanderers by Dhawal Trivedi
"“The Meanderers” is a compelling coming of age novel that captures in a vivid manner, the diverse perspectives of life viewed through the prism of its protagonist. The story of Om Vats is an epigrammatic agglomeration of triumphs and tribulations...." Read more of this review »

It’s books like this one, so intentionally a singular thought (or many that blend seamlessly into one another) – just picking up where the last left off – and so you just can’t put it down. It’s a page turner, but not in the stereotypical sense. The ...more

I'd like to start with the fact that it's been so long since I've read a collection of poems that I wanted to savour and even as I got to the Epilogue (which I loved, dearly, because of the reference to Cvetkovich's essay that I studied in a class I ...more

This is a novel that deals with identity, how it is mostly projected – we see people as we'd like to see them more often than who they really are – and, most importantly, time.

It's full of moments and scenes where you stop and think to yourself about

This book made me realize just how crucial Canadian literature is to my understanding of Canada and its history. I'd learned about the Quiet Revolution in Quebec in class but never with this kind of context. Mavis Gallant's short story, "The Doctor", ...more

Pablo Neruda
“I love you without knowing how, or when, or from where. I love you simply, without problems or pride: I love you in this way because I do not know any other way of loving but this, in which there is no I or you, so intimate that your hand upon my chest is my hand, so intimate that when I fall asleep your eyes close.”
Pablo Neruda, 100 Love Sonnets

Cherie Priest
“And people tended not to bother a woman with a book.”
Cherie Priest, Dreadnought

Charles Bukowski
“We're all going to die, all of us, what a circus! That alone should make us love each other but it doesn't. We are terrorized and flattened by trivialities, we are eaten up by nothing.”
Charles Bukowski

Warsan Shire
“Your daughter is ugly.
She knows loss intimately,
carries whole cities in her belly.

As a child, relatives wouldn’t hold her.
She was splintered wood and sea water.
They said she reminded them of the war.

On her fifteenth birthday you taught her
how to tie her hair like rope
and smoke it over burning frankincense.

You made her gargle rosewater
and while she coughed, said
macaanto girls like you shouldn’t smell
of lonely or empty.

You are her mother.
Why did you not warn her,
hold her like a rotting boat
and tell her that men will not love her
if she is covered in continents,
if her teeth are small colonies,
if her stomach is an island
if her thighs are borders?

What man wants to lay down
and watch the world burn
in his bedroom?

Your daughter’s face is a small riot,
her hands are a civil war,
a refugee camp behind each ear,
a body littered with ugly things

but God,
doesn’t she wear
the world well.”
Warsan Shire

Warsan Shire
“My alone feels so good, I'll only have you if you're sweeter than my solitude.”
Warsan Shire
