About the Book

Bold and sensuous, Mandakranta Sen’s poems document the truths of body and desire. Holding nothing back, they spill over the pages and force us to take notice. My heart is an Unruly girl is a worthy addition to feminist poems of love and desire. The rawness of the original Bengali translates beautifully and seamlessly into English. “She who writes poetry in the middle of the night/ With her hair undone – is a witch”, Mandakranta writes. One tends to agree. There is, certainly, an element of witchcraft in these poems, which cast a spell on the readers.
