"Meena Alexander's imagination thrives in the active cross-fertilization of cultures and genres. In this new collection we are privy to the full and variegated display of her poetry." -MARILYN CHIN
"The river and bridge are ultimatey the same. Just as New York City and Delhi merge in the body and imagination of a woman making poetry near the end of an age, Meena Alexander eloquently leads to the conclusion of this fine collection with : 'There is no grief like this / the origin of landscape is mercy.' These poems are the jouney we take with her to know this, utterly." - JOY HARJO
"Meena Alexander is one of the finest Indian poets writing today." - KEKI N. DARUWALLA
"The next time someone suggests poetry cannot honestly deal with the real news of the world I will raise the name of Meena Alexander and this fine book like a flag - or a prayer." - CORNELIUS EADY
