this is the recipe of life
said my mother
as she held me in her arms as i wept
think of those flowers you plant
in the garden each year
they will teach you
that people too
must wilt
fall
root
rise
in order to bloom

Publisher Review

"Rupi Kaur is a rock star." * Kansas City Star * "There's no denying that Rupi Kaur is currently one of the most - if not the most - popular poets in America." * Boston Globe * "At age 24, Rupi Kaur has been called the voice of her generation (move over, Lena Dunham)." * USA Today * "Rupi Kaur sits atop a new wave in poetry." * The Wall Street Journal * "Rupi Kaur reinvents poetry." * The Economist * "The line drawings that accompany her poems are raw, evocative and utterly striking." * Toronto Star * "One of the most popular writers in the world, full stop." * The Globe and Mail * "At once simple, current and hard-hitting." * The Guardian (London) * "Her work is human experience, tidily aestheticized and monetized, rendered inspirational and relatable in perfect balance." * The Cut * "The poet who touched a nerve." * The Times (London) * "Rupi Kaur is kicking down the doors of publishing." * The New York Times (Style) * "Rupi Kaur's The Sun and Her Flowers is everything her fans have been waiting for. . . . [She's] perhaps the best-known poet in the English-speaking world at this point." * Bustle *
