Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
Rupi Kaur's first book, Milk and Honey is the poetry collection every woman needs on her nightstand or coffee table. Accompanied by her own sketches, the beautifully honest poems read like the everyday, collective experiences of today's modern woman. (Erin Spencer, Huffington Post)

Rupi Kaur’s writing echoes of artistry and wisdom which is seen in the work of those that have been writing for years. (Samira Sawlani, Media Diversified)

Rupi’s poetry is simple, relatable, gorgeous, and grounded in the everyday experiences of young women. (Rachel Grate, Hello Giggles)

The honest words of Rupi Kaur leave you continuously wanting more as she writes with eloquence and poise. Her work will send you to past thoughts and realities you might not have known you had.
(Sienna Brown, WildSpice Magazine)

Meet the Author

When she was five, her mother handed her a paintbrush and said, “draw your heart out.” Rupi Kaur views her life as an exploration of that artistic journey. Through her poetry and illustrations, she engages with love, loss, trauma, healing, and femininity. For Rupi, writing has always been a collective experience. At the age of seventeen she began sharing her work. The stage was her first love and spoken word is where she found her voice. Rupi pursued her love for language by studying rhetoric at the University of Waterloo. She began working on her first collection milk and honey, which eventually became a New York Times bestseller. Rupi’s passion is expression. For her that expression takes many forms. Her photography and art direction are brought to various spaces around the world and her poetry and prose are breaking international boundaries.

I just got out of a relationship 3 days ago and was considering getting back together with him. This book helped me come to the realization that, that option is not an option anymore. I read this while 1. taking refuge in my bed and 2. Crying till the tears stopped. This book is what made my eyes finally dry up after 3 long days of feeling sorry for myself.

So I had recently gotten a gift card for barnes and noble. I had 5 dollars remaining, and I enjoy this book, so I thought, why not get the 5 dollar e book version? I knew there could be risks, but I did not know that I could receive an entirely different book. I have read milk and honey before, and it is nothing like the 1800's sounding story of Krishna, who thou shalt fear nothing, or whatever the book said, that I recieved. Do not purchase the 5 dollar one!! It will waste your money. Barnes and Noble, I really don't like this. I expected the great book I loved, and got something that was almost unreadable. Waste of my money. Is there any way to get a refund? Please take the 5 dollar version off of this shop. It is a scam.

OMG I feel that all things womanhood are validated. The struggle, the heartbreak, the beauty, THE STRENGTH. I loved every...single...word. My favorite quote: “if you were born with the weakness to fall you were born with the strength to rise”

Accurate description of true feelings

Rupi Kaur invites her audience to come along on her journey from feeling less than broken to feeling loved and whole. As she describes her experience with abuse, she demonstrates her newfound understanding of it in her anthology, Milk and Honey. It is split into four sections; the hurting, loving, breaking, and healing. Considering this, she begins her story by describing how people have mistreated her and tainted her idea of what it means to be loved. Through the book, Kaur uses her hurtful past as a catalyst to start a new and discover herself. She also includes charming drawings to better illustrate her poems, which only refines her masterpiece. The fact that this book is based on true events from her life aid her audience in connecting with Kaur, and make the poetry more raw and personal. Though it is fair to caution that this book deals with mature material and is advised as too grown up for most children, many women will find this book to be rich with truth, beauty, and emotion.
