‘Manash’s poems speak of love and death, as overheard from the cloisters of a formal garden. India – new India and India of the continuous past confide in his intricate poetry.’

– Steven O’Brien, Editor of The London Magazine

‘These are poems that impress with their musicality and suppleness of line, as well as their wide-ranging (and widely read) intelligence.’

– Suzi Feay, Literary Journalist

‘(An) outstanding debut collection… Manash is as rooted as he is cosmopolitan and is able to travel easily through space and time… The poems move comfortably from the lyrical to the narrative, gesturing towards a world where reality and imagination, the world of history and that of art slide into each other and become indistinguishable.’

– K. Satchidanandan, poet and critic

Manash Bhattacharjee’s debut collection Ghalib’s Tomb and Other Poems is an impressive volume that signals the arrival of a new voice.’

– Vijaya Singh
