Healing Waters Floating Lamps (Paperback)
"Delicately poised between a viscerally concrete imagery and a sweepingly abstract philosophy, Kiriti Sengupta's poetry takes us to many places at the same time: the wilted pathways of memory, the teasing tickles of laughter, and when we least expect it, the sharpest splinters of wisdom. Energized by endearing colloquialisms and engaging narratives, this is verse destined for the kind of popular, folkloric life which is the true home of poetry."- Saikat Majumdar, the author of two novels, "Silverfish," and "The Firebird" (forthcoming), and a book of criticism, "Prose of the World," teaches world literature at Stanford University.
