BECOMING THE BRONZE IDOL

"Each of the poems in Becoming the Bronze Idol is, in itself, like a tiny deity. The anger in many of these poems—anger about the loss of identity and ancestry due to colonialism; anger about being treated differently due to racism and xenophobia—cuts like the righteous blade of a vengeful goddess. There are sex-poems and there are death-poems, and Mookerjee makes it clear that one does not exist without the other, in the same way that many goddesses are deities of both fertility and war. No matter the topic or mood, there is a lushness to this book. Whether writing about sex or rot, identity or familial ghosts, Mookerjee’s words ooze raw sensuality. Read Becoming the Bronze Idol the way you’d worship a goddess—in reverence to the beauty and the terror. Asking that you may be found worthy of receiving its blessings."
