The Animal Bridegroom

- by Sandra Katsuri, Neil Gaiman

Reader Reward Price: $13.46

In the fantastical world of Sandra Kasturis poetry, myth intersects with reality resulting in a unique dream world that even those who generally shy away from poetry find irresistible. Filled with instances of role reversal, shapeshifting and gender bending, the feminist streak running through these poems becomes a bedtime story whose ending is suspect, unexpected and filled with dark humour. Whether running with the wolves, or sleeping with them, Kasturi uses her sly words to turn everyday conventions inside out.

Come Late to the Love of Birds

- by Sandra Kasturi

Trade paperback $16.95 - Add to Cart
Reader Reward Price: $15.26

Sandra's first collection, The Animal Bridegroom featured an introduction by Neil Gaiman and has sold out. This collection expands on her themes of abject romances, deformed fairytales gone and the astonishing delights of life in glorious 21st century.

Kasturi's latest poetry book fuses nature's continuous emotional offerings, our desire to understand ourselves with our passion to be free, devoid of the burden of modern thought.
