Publisher’s Synopsis (from its website)

Sneha Madhavan-Reese is an exciting new voice in the Canadian poetry scene. Madhavan-Reese’s imagery is lyric, potent and painterly, creating sensory experiences that shimmer with light and humanity while probing the darkness of a sometimes paradoxical world. Perhaps the most moving work in the book concerns the journey of a new mother and her reconnection with the changed world. These poems of family and generational memory are incisive, mature, confident, and savvy in their awareness of the multiple contradictions of cultural desire.
