this is the recipe of life
said my mother
as she held me in her arms as i wept

in the garden each year
they will teach you
that people too

in order to bloom

Review quote

"Rupi Kaur is a rock star." * Kansas City Star * "There's no denying that Rupi Kaur is currently one of the most - if not the most - popular poets in America." * Boston Globe * "At age 24, Rupi Kaur has been called the voice of her generation (move over, Lena Dunham)." * USA Today * "Rupi Kaur sits atop a new wave in poetry." * The Wall Street Journal * "Rupi Kaur reinvents poetry." * The Economist * "The line drawings that accompany her poems are raw, evocative and utterly striking." * Toronto Star * "One of the most popular writers in the world, full stop." * The Globe and Mail * "At once simple, current and hard-hitting." * The Guardian (London) * "Her work is human experience, tidily aestheticized and monetized, rendered inspirational and relatable in perfect balance." * The Cut * "The poet who touched a nerve." * The Times (London) * "Rupi Kaur is kicking down the doors of publishing." * The New York Times (Style) * "Rupi Kaur's The Sun and Her Flowers is everything her fans have been waiting for. . . . [She's] perhaps the best-known poet in the English-speaking world at this point." * Bustle *
