In Open Mouths Sharan Hunjan presents a vision of a world simultaneously familiar and strikingly strange. The quotidian, the domestic, the commonplace are interrogated and manipulated through the poet's eye for detail, linguistic sense of play and restless imaginative and philosophical impulses. The short-comings of language, the gulf between words and meaning, between experi-ence and description, the space between translation, between places, between generations-these are the problems with which Hunjan grapples. Full of seemingly quiet, yet startlingly profound thought, razor-sharp word-play, raw emotion and dazzling image and phrase-making, Open Mouths marks the emergence of another stellar talent from the 4 BROWN GIRLS WHO WRITE stable.
