"Rarely does one have the pleasure of seeing so many poets violate the truth that no one
can be in two places at once.
Indivisible provides hundreds of local
poetic delights and deserves a place among the best anthologies of poetry."
- Billy Collins
Former U.S. Poet Laureate
"Indivisible is seamless passion, held together by the will to cross borders and embrace that which
is sacred in the individual.
This collection of poems underscores a voyage through physical and
psychological time and space, but it also clearly
undermines any notion of a diaspora of the soul
and spirit. Moments of graceful resiliency are captured again and again, and
an unbroken map of lyrical recollection. There are lived lives behind these marvelous poems."
- Yusef Komunyakaa
Distinguished Senior Poet at NYU
"No-one can speak for 'America' or 'Humanity,' but these poems give us a glimpse of both.
Scattered among them are treasures
and heartbreaks, mercurial descriptions of life and languid
backward glances at what is left behind, what cannot be recovered.
This is a language map of
South Asian America. Come. Come for a ride."
- Vijay Prashad
author of The Darker Nations: A People's History of the Third World and
The Karma of Brown Folk
"Like seedlings breaking through concrete cracks, the poems collected in
Indivisible widen the literary landscape and expose
the reader to fresh terrain.
Gathering together for the first time an expansive and varied set of voices
representing the breadth
of South Asian American poetry, reading Indivisible is
like witnessing the wings of a newly discovered bird, outstretched,
for an untouched horizon."
- Matthew Shenoda
author of Seasons of Lotus, Seasons of Bone
