Eye is a brilliant first book from poet Sati Mookherjee exploring the exile of her grandfather from India to pre-World War II Europe, his interior voyage from grief to insight and the echoes of those journeys in the lives of his descendents.

“The eye is the first circle,” says Emerson in the epigraph to this stunning first book by Sati Mookherjee, who in widening circles embraces continents and generations."
—Robert McNamara, author of Incomplete Strangers

"Mookherjee’s graceful collection vividly charts his journey through an alchemy of details in which we see “ordinary things turned holy.”
—John Willson, author of Call This Room a Station

"The poem cycle in Eye moves in exquisite orbits, beginning with the image of the eye, then radiating out, rippling with worldly details, coalescing finally with the appearance of his great-grandchildren, even one yet unconceived, continuing the circle."
—Arlene Naganawa, author of Private Graveyard
