This is an essential collection, a summing-up, as well as a fount of instruction and pleasure. Jeet Thayil Daruwalla s verbs have lost none of their feral quality. His poetic line remains, for the most part, sinewy and energetic. The capacity to combine atmospheric sweep with succinctness, and to turn out the startling turn of phrase with an almost throwaway air are unchanged.
