Open Mouths (SIGNED COPIES) - Sharan Hunjan


Sharan Hunjan

Regular price £10.99

Tax included.


In Open Mouths Sharan Hunjan presents a vision of a world simultaneously familiar and strikingly strange. The quotidian, the domestic, the commonplace are interrogated and manipulated through the poet’s eye for detail, linguistic sense of play and restless imaginative and philosophical impulses. The shortcomings of language, the gulf between words and meaning, between experience and description, the space between translation, between places, between generations—these are the problems with which Hunjan grapples.
Full of seemingly quiet, yet startlingly profound thought, razor-sharp wordplay, raw emotion and dazzling image and phrase-making, Open Mouths marks the emergence of another stellar talent from the 4 BROWN GIRLS WHO WRITE stable.

“Bold, invigorating, formally adventurous and richly attentive to language, Sharan Hunjan's poetry is like a wake-up call to the page.” —Moniza Alvi

"Hunjan complicates the ordinary—she makes it shimmer, glow and fragment. These poems are tender, strange and deeply moving.”—Ella Frears
