With this collection, the poet calls for us to have a greater awareness of our own inner landscapes and how they translate into the choices we make and the lives we lead. Don’t let the gorgeousness of Anupama’s language fool you, these poems will hit you with beautiful rage.

—Rebecca Watkins for Nyack News and Views

Kali Sutra cover thumbnailScenes of love and warring divinities entwine intimately in this poetry collection by Indian-American poet A. Anupama. Borrowing from ancient Indian poetic traditions while striding with a contemporary lyricism, this collection fiercely guards a tender song of longing. Enthusiasts of yoga and meditation will find as much to embrace as those who enjoy the Kama Sutra’s sensual imagery and the bold personae of Hindu mythology. The book includes original poems and her translations of several classical Indian love poems. In a recent review, Rebecca Watkins wrote “the sensual language of these translations along with images of ‘jasmine flowers, tied gently’ or the way ‘orange-yellow spills from the edge of the sailboat’s prow / into a thirsty sky,’ creates a lyrical landscape simultaneously peaceful and passionate.”
