BOOK LAUNCH, PERFORMANCE & PARTY for 'The Glass Puddle'
SAT 7th NOVEMBER:
The Glass Puddle is a collection of poems that reflect my lived experience as a first generation British Asian woman growing up in the 70’s through to the present. It is an exploration of in-between spaces: India - Little India - Little Britain – Britain, and how I keep falling in between the gaps! The collection is a complete manuscript containing 100 poems in free verse and moves between small towns in England and the vibrant landscapes of Kerala, India.
I won my first poetry competition aged 8 with a poem about my father, superhero and village doctor who used to visit his patients flying through the air in his 70’s flares. However, to my parents disappointment I didn’t fancy studying medicine so ran off to Art school and joined a rock n’ roll band instead. This is also a recurring theme.
