Characters and landscapes leap off every page and the poems pulse with a visceral humanity as Maharsi glories in the possibilities of language and life. Reading this book is like being splashed with freezing water and showered with popping candy and wild roses – surprising, refreshing and bewildering, and something you won’t forget in a hurry.
