Triage

by Margaret Mascarenhas

eBook
Savage. Searing. Compelling. Images and words that are like ice picks piercing the heart. Mascarenhas dazzles ... and hurts.- SHOBHAA DE In this evocative collection of poetry, flash memoir and sketches, Margaret Mascarenhas challenges still prevalent myths about romantic love, treating it as a medical emergency, whose obsessive nature transcends gender and sexual orientation. This is a body of work that also subtly conveys the intimate and visceral traffic between text and image and, in the process, asserts the curative and restorative powers of writing and art. 'Imperious, yet insistently vulnerable, Margaret Mascarenhas writes into the still unhealed wounds of loves past and present, exposing through her tightly knit, even queer, verse, the glorious vagaries of the human heart.' - Rosalyn D'Mello 'Give me bread and poetry, and make the poetry the rich, sensual, kingfisher-coloured poems that make up Margaret Mascarenhas' Triage. A wickedly intelligent, major voice in Indian writing, Mascarenhas will remind you that poems are as essential, and as satisfying, as fresh-baked bread.' - Nilanjana Roy
