"Set in motion by her grandfather's exile from India, Mookherjee's graceful collection vividly charts his journey through an alchemy of details in which we see "ordinary things turned holy." In a brilliant multiplicity of forms, evocative images of eyes emerge as if to watch over the grandfather's struggles with sorrow, dislocation, faith, and the meaning of home. A total eclipse of the moon brings the odyssey to its beautifully redemptive close, rooted in kinship. Possessing lyrical means of transport and a visceral sense of place, this is a marvelous reading experience."
- Josh Willson, author of "Call This Room a Station"
