Jeet Thayil's definitive selection covers 55 years of Indian poetry in English. It is the first anthology to represent not just the major poets of the past half-century - the canonical writers who have dominated Indian poetry and publishing since the 1950s - but also the different kinds of poetry written by an extraordinary range of younger poets who live in many other countries. It is a groundbreaking global anthology of 70 poets writing in a common language, responding to shared traditions, different cultures and contrasting lives in the changing modern world. "This is a crucial addition to world poetry and an eye-opening reading adventure." The Bloomsbury Review
