An unusual book of poems. . . not all rhyme. All are beautiful, many sad. They paint portraits of women from India, Pakistan and Bangladesh. They are to read and reread. (I count myself fortunate to have been in the audience when the author read them.) ( )

Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0934971749, Paperback)

Poetry. Asian American Studies. A revised edition of this popular book of poetry. Chitra Divakaruni evokes the sounds, smells, tastes, sights of South Asian culture. Told in a woman's voice, these poems create a mindscape of a woman's experience, their hold both tenuous and graceful. The world in this book is a necklace of bright pearls that burns the skin, yet is... fastened to the body with a jeweled clasp: the compassion of Divakaruni's fiercely seeing heart -- Jane Hirshfield.
