**Delve into 30 spectacular poems in this debut collection**
PRAISE FOR THE COLLECTION ‘Manash's poems speak of love and death, as overheard from the cloisters of a formal garden. India – new India and India of the continuous past confide in his intricate poetry.’ –Steven O’Brien
‘These are poems that impress with their musicality and suppleness of line, as well as their wide-ranging (and widely read) intelligence.’ – Suzi Feay, Literary Journalist
‘(An) outstanding debut collection… Manash is as rooted as he is cosmopolitan and is able to travel easily through space and time… The poems move comfortably from the lyrical to the narrative, gesturing towards a world where reality and imagination, the world of history and that of art slide into each other and become indistinguishable.’ – K. Satchidanandan, poet and critic, The Hindu http://www.thehindu.com/books/books-reviews/original-images/article5538137.ece
‘In Ghalib’s Tomb, Manash Bhattacharjee nurtures a bountiful garden of moods and reflections, mixing memory with sadness with astonishing results.’ – Angshukanta Chakraborty, millenniumpost http://www.millenniumpost.in/NewsContent.aspx?NID=48554
