Book Description

Jan. 1 2010 155096139X 978-1550961393
In exploring the topic of health, this collection of poetry tackles a crucial aspect of our lives—but one that is rarely a subject of contemporary art. Playful, satirical, surreal, yet unflinchingly humane, the poems introduce men with wands to patrol their neighborhoods, past selves smuggling themselves aboard airplanes, and unhappy people trying their luck on a psychological wheel of blame.

Product Description


“[Uppal]writes poems for which she most likely would have been imprisoned, burnt at the stake, or shot in many countries in the world, both in the distant past and today. Luckily for us, here she is.” —Charles Simic, United States Poet Laureate

“The poems bristle with startling imagery and sardonic humour."  —Toronto Star

“Both witty and serious, attacking big questions while concentrating on small details.”  —Contemporary Verse 2
