Made in India: travels in poetry by Jen Gibson

'Enjoy a rewarding trip to India with Jen Gibson. In poems exotic yet familiar, women sweep, peaks rise, spider webs quiver with a footfall, birds call and children chant. But in evoking the full sweep of her Indian experience, we hear of greedy cities, lethal childbirth and child brides. Jen Gibson's eye is keen. Her voice is clear. The poems are beautifully rendered to offer a reading of India that draws us in. Well worth the journey.' - Jan Colvill 'Jen Gibson lived and travelled in various parts of India for four years in the 1990s. Her experiences there affect her life and work profoundly to this day. In Made in India: travels in poetry, Jen Gibson casts her wondering, humorous, compassionate gaze on all she meets and sees. These poems have the immediacy of vivid journal entries - some are snapshots, others reflective as well. All convey the sights, sounds, tastes and smells of India. Read these poems and Jen will take you there.' - Robyn Mathison 'These poems cover all that is extraordinary about India. From life's minutiae to the grand vistas of the Himalayas, Jen's words fill me with a longing to return. Sensuous and deeply personal, juxtaposed images breathe life into a magical subcontinent experience.' - Chris Gallagher, Tasmanian Writers Centre
