9780996224222: The Adulterous Citizen ― poems, stories, essays

Poetry. Fiction. Literary Nonfiction. Asian & Asian American Studies. Women's Studies. Travel. This is an exploration into an obsession. THE ADULTEROUS CITIZEN contemplates the feeling of belonging, while yearning for the seduction of elsewhere. Tishani Doshi guides us through the streets of Cartagena, the seaside of Madras, and the bronze cliffs of Wales; through arcane museums and into strangers' houses; her poems, short stories and essays take us on a train ride across India into self-discovery and a teenager's failed escape on the American Road, into a house of childhood ghosts, and on a journey of a delusional widow in the Himalayas. Travelling along are those abstract countries of memory and the imagination—the author's constant companions, and the reason why she writes at all: because she just "won't shut up!"

About the Author:

Tishani Doshi is an award-winning poet, journalist, and dancer. She's the author of the acclaimed novel, The Pleasure Seekers (2010), the poetry collection EVERYTHING BEGINS ELSEWHERE (Copper Canyon Press, 2013), and THE ADULTEROUS CITIZEN — POEMS STORIES ESSAYS (House of Nehesi Publishers, 2015). Doshi's book Countries of the Body won the Forward Poetry Prize for best first collection in the UK. Her articles have appeared in newspapers such as the Guardian, International Herald Tribune, The Hindu, The Weekend Financial Times, Vogue, Elle, and The New York Times. Tishani Doshi now divides her time between a village by the sea in South India, and elsewhere.

Review:

Tishani Doshi brings to the written page the precision, poise and sensuality of an accomplished dancer, which is also what she is. --Tabish Khair, poet and novelist
