young girls! (the 87 press)

Karenjit Sandhu

Research output: Book/ReportBook


A reimagining of the life of Hungarian-Indian artist Amrita Sher-Gil (1913-1941). Through her art Sher-Gil creates a bridge between the east and west. Sandhu’s collection aims to capture the merging of cultures, languages, geographies, and identities. It is for anyone who has ever found themselves caught in the in-between.

From ‘sweet sobs’ to ‘the reservoir of sadness’ a vivacious energy animates this debut collection of poems; ‘young girls!’ circles back to those fleeting moments of rebellious girlhood with verve and humour.
– Mona Arshi, author of 'Small Hands' and 'Somebody Loves You'.
