From the publisher

In 'The Yak Dilemma', Supriya Kaur Dhaliwal ventures out of the mountain ranges of Palampur and across vast distances of land and sea. From scenes playing out through Dublin windows to ruminating on wearing a Sadri in the West, these innovative mediations are as much about personal identity as they are a testament to the human spirit's drive to cross territory and forge a 'map' of our own. Kaur Dhaliwal's map, if she has one, is without architecture or foundations; 'Four walls don't make a home or a house-it takes some doing', she writes in 'Ghazal on Living in a Hotel in Downtown Cairo'. She is part of a dynamic new generation of poets pushing the medium into exciting new areas by questioning the notion of 'place' and its effect on our bodies-including the human spirit and memory. Uprooted and unsettled, her lyrical voice generously outlines 'home' as something other than a physical place. 'The Yak Dilemma' is a remarkable poetic journey, its words create new territories by carefully revealing the fragile spaces that fall in between.
