A bit of poetry

Who said there are no takers for poetry? The crowd that gathered in a city cafe on Thursday for a poetry reading session by Jeet Thayil from the book The Right Kind of Dog by Adil Jussawalla, reverses the theory. 

A set of subtle poems–sometimes funny, sometimes sad, but always thought-provoking, The Right Kind of Dog talks about the things that young people struggle with: rejection, learning to find their feet, trying to fit in and being forced to conform. Written in Adil Jussawalla's terse and sharp style, with stunning and suggestive illustrations, the book is a must have. 

Adil Jussawalla is the author of three books of poems, the most recent being Trying to Say Goodbye (Almost Island Books, 2011).
