Poetry. Women's Studies. Cover Art by Ishita Basu Mallik. THE BLUEST KALI is a series of linguistic exoricisms through the corridors of a brown woman's clinical depression, dissociations and displacements that extend from psychological to spiritual exiles. Bhanu Kapil says, "...This is a book composed in an intense present—the 'returning wave'—of trauma, ecstasy, displacement, radical healing and...love."
