Vivek Shraya is a talented writer, musician, performer and filmmaker who has previously published an acclaimed novel (She of the Mountains) and a YA book (God Loves Hair) as well as a new children’s picture book this season (The Boy & the Bindi). This is his first poetry book.
even this page is inspired by events of the past few years in which race (as well as class, gender, and sexuality) have become explosive and divisive issues. The motivation for the book is to use poetry to reduce and transcend barriers that divide people according to race, and to paint the face of racism so that it is visible, tangible and undeniable.
The book includes a “conversation with friends” featuring Sarah Quin (of the popular music duo Tegan and Sara), poet and memoirist Amber Dawn, musician Rae Spoon, and author Dannielle Owens-Reid.
Vivek is an engaging and highly popular performer; in addition to writing, he is a performance and recording artist (as well as filmmaker) and often incorporates music and multimedia into his readings.
