Quote of the Day
I'm filled with admiration for what you've achieved, and particularly for the hard work and the 'cottage industry' aspect of it.

  • Description
  • Excerpt
  • with my home intact
                       but always changing
    so the windows don't match
    the doors anymore - the colours
    clash in the garden -
    And the ocean lives in bedroom.

    I am the one
    who always goes
    away with my home
    which can only stay inside
    in my blood - my home which does not fit
                      with any geography.


    from 'The One Who Goes Away'
    Sujata Bhatt's first book of poems, the award-winning Brunizem, appeared in 1988. In a very short time she has gained recognition as one of the distinct and reckonable new voices. She has things to say about her native India and her native tongue (Gujarati), about America and Britain, and about Germany where she now lives. She is, the New Statesman declared, 'one of the finest poets alive', and alive in a unique way to language, to issues of politics and gender, to place and history. Hers is a remarkable complete imagination, generous and at the same time unsparingly severe in its quest for the difficult truths of experience.
