Product Description

Review

A striking, emergent talent who is prepared to take risks in pursuit of sensual, emotionally engaged and passionate poetry. --John Burnside, Forward Prize judge's comment.

'...an invigorating, thought-provoking collection which, like the dancing Doshi loves, enlivens soul and senses, sharpening responses to both "the music of uncertainty" and "the aftertaste of rain".' --Miriam Gamble, The Guardian

A striking, emergent talent who is prepared to take risks in pursuit of sensual, emotionally engaged and passionate poetry. --John Burnside, Forward Prize judge's comment.

About the Author

Tishani Doshi is an award-winning poet and dancer of Welsh-Gujarati descent. She was born in Madras, India, in 1975. She received her masters in writing from the Johns Hopkins University in America and worked in London in advertising before returning to India in 2001 to work with the choreographer Chandralekha, with whom she performed on many international stages. An avid traveller, she has been trekking in the Ethiopian Bale Mountains, visited Antarctica with a group of high-school students, and documented the largest transvestite gathering in Koovakam. She has written about her travels in newspapers such as the Guardian, International Herald Tribune, The Hindu and the Financial Times. She won an Eric Gregory Award for her poetry in 2001. In 2006, she won the All-India Poetry Competition, and her debut collection, "Countries of the Body" (Aark Arts), won the Forward Prize for Best First Collection. Her first novel, "The Pleasure Seekers" (Bloomsbury, 2010), was longlisted for the Orange Prize and shortlisted for the Hindu Fiction Award, and has been translated into several languages. Her second poetry collection, "Everything Begins Elsewhere", is published by Bloodaxe Books in 2012. Tishani Doshi divides her time between Cheyyur, Tamil Nadu, and elsewhere. She frequently moonlights as a dancer.
