In this wonderful second collection, Moniza Alvi steps boldly into the territory she made her own in The Country at my Shoulder , a book which made her one of the chosen `New Generation' poets. A greater depth of seriousness infuses her poems on Pakistan and India, but she has retained her delicacy of spirit and the gentle surrealism that identifies her work. This book is intended for poets, readers of poetry, (women particularly?)show more
