A dazzling and eloquent reworking of the Mahabharata, one of South Asia's best-loved epics, through nineteen peripheral voices. With daring poetic forms, Karthika Naïr breathes new life into this ancient epic.
Anna Citrino has woven the story of Italian immigrants--their small joys and compelling heartaches--into a moonlit tapestry. Thread by poetic thread, this book is an exquisite fabric of personal journeys, cultural insights, and little known Italian American history. I loved entering this "space between," created with great love and profound grace.
