A God at the Door
Shortlisted for the Forward Prize for Best Collection 2021
'May we always have the music and elegant fury of Tishani Doshi's poetry.'
'The poems of Tishani Doshi's A God at the Door operate on the grand scale, reaching for visionary responses ... stunning and ambitious.'
'At the core of Doshi's poetry is a quest, traced through anguish and exhilaration, for that hidden yet ever-present harmony which connects all species, animates all things, heals all trauma. A reader could explore the topographies of this book for ever.'
Tishani Doshi's new book of poems tackles hyper-nationalism and misogyny head on, transforming a collective grief, anger and loneliness into a beam of hope and resilience. Shortlisted for the 2021 Forward Prize for Best Collection, A God at the Door is nothing short of a tour de force.
