Praise for Basmati Brown

I've travelled this book very closely — from the “then-and-now” of India and the West, via anger and compassion, through caste and kin and state — all the while convinced that I am in the hands of a skilled writer/musician, one whose plausible geometry speaks to the contemporary experience that is being of two (or more) places at once.
—Michael Turner

Here is a real made book … performance poetry, rich nouns, a montage of material for a world you probably haven't seen yet. With puns and jabs, Dulai memorializes his heritage — and wrestles it to the ground.
—George Bowering
