Kalagora, Paperback / softback Book

Kalagora Paperback / softback


In this dazzling debut collection by Indian-born poet Siddhartha Bose, the cities of Kolkata, Mumbai, New York and London are transformed into sites of fractured vision. Bose has created a volatile, dynamic poetics in which love and longing compete with the hybrid, multicultural cityscape.

A five-part structure reflects this multiplicity: 'Prolectric' and 'Epilepsis' book-end sequences on childhood and initiation ('Sunya'), love ('Maya') and the city ('Nagri').

Kalagora is a Hindi neologism meaning black man / white man; this book tells his story.
