Dialect of Distant Harbors

Available for Special Order
Dialect of Distant Harbors
This poetry collection explores themes of home, grieving, and kinship.

With wonder, empathy, and even rage, Dialect of Distant Harbors summons a shared humanity to examine issues of illness and family. Dipika Mukherjee's poems redefine belonging and migration in a misogynistic and racist world. "A grievous vastness to this world," she writes, "beyond human experience."

As the world recovers from a global pandemic and the failure of modern government, these poems are incantations to our connections to the human family--whether in Asia, Europe, or the United States. Dialect of Distant Harbors focuses on what is most resilient in ourselves and our communities.
