We are thrilled to be able to bring you the first UK version of Reclamation Song.
Here’s why…‘The poems in this collection are driven by a direct and fearless gaze which explores the role of women in both Afghanistan, India and the UK and refuses to look away. Wide-ranging and ambitious, they weave together the personal, political and the social to examine the role of power and violence in relationships and society. In a poem, where a window becomes a way of looking at the world and the self, Jhilmil Breckenridge writes ‘The window asks me to be present/to witness’. She answers this calling throughout this collection, wielding intricate imagery with an accomplished use of form to create a rich and moving collection.’ Kim Moore, author of The Art of Falling
Having been published to great acclaim in Dehli by Red River Press, this is the first UK edition of a wonderful collection.
