Gulf by Michelle D'costa
— Sumana Roy, Author of Out of Syllabus
“In Michelle’s poems, the reader is transported to a world that is young, lush, and kaleidoscopic, where faith and family are constantly tested and affirmed. Her poems quiver with vulnerability and heart.”
— Shikha Malaviya, Author of Geography of Tongues
“Reading Gulf is like migrating through a miraculous ring hidden under the tongue. These poems open a portal to a world where fish-eyes explore identity, desire, and belonging from a giraffe’s neck.”
— Arjun Rajendran, Author of One man: Two executions
