RADHA SAYS (ed.) (Drunken Boat, 2009)
Poetry. Limited Edition. Asian American Studies. Edited by Leslie McGrath and Ravi Shankar. Foreword by Kazim Ali. Drunken Boat Media presents the inaugural title in its book series, Indian-American poet Reetika Vaziranis posthumous manuscript, RADHA SAYS. A rising star and companion of Pulitzer Prize-winning poet Yusef Komunyakaa, Vazirani was at the height of her poetic powers when she tragically ended her own life and the life of her young son, Jehan. She left behind a manuscript of poems sealed in an envelope, with which Leslie McGrath and Ravi Shankar worked to edit and to bring out her last poems.
