Notes From Your Bookseller

There is no one who knows the power of the written and spoken word better than Rupi Kaur. In Home Body, Kaur's poems are compact. Each one, however, is full of the exact right words. Words that help. Words that heal. Kaur's accompanying illustrations add to the sensitivity of the material. Line drawings as delicate as the poems. Combined with the poems, they create a strength. By going so deep into life's experience, Kaur shows us how to resurface the strength we always knew we had. This book is one of the bravest works of poetry you will ever encounter.

From the #1 New York Times bestselling author of milk and honey and the sun and her flowers comes her greatly anticipated third collection of poetry.

rupi kaur constantly embraces growth, and in home body, she walks readers through a reflective and intimate journey visiting the past, the present, and the potential of the self. home body is a collection of raw, honest conversations with oneself - reminding readers to fill up on love, acceptance, community, family, and embrace change. illustrated by the author, themes of nature and nurture, light and dark, rest here.

i dive into the well of my body
and end up in another world
everything i need
already exists in me
there’s no need
to look anywhere else
