"Keki N. Daruwalla is one of India's leading English-language writers. His poetry is characterized by the vigour and immediacy of its language, the delicacy of its landscapes, the sharpness and sensitivity of its portrayals of both individuals and human society, and the breadth of its subject matter. This first full-length volume of Daruwalla's work to be published outside of India provides a long-overdue opportunity to become better acquainted with a poet previously encountered in the UK - in tantalizing glimpses - only in anthologies."--BOOK JACKET.
