Opening with an aubade for the labyrinthian corners of Bombay's largest slum, Tourist is a collection that is unafraid of shadows, and aims to unearth the unseen. Set across time and landscape-modern day Michigan, 1970's Cambodia, WWI England, the kaleidoscopic mindscape of an Alzheimer patient - these poems draw us into lives that, initially, seem foreign, yet provoke our solidarity in the face of disorientation-a boy facing his first bankruptcy, an Elephant facing destruction at the hands of poachers. The book culminates in 'Beethoven Walks', an elegiac war cry from a man who wades in and out of darkness like a modern day Odysseus, and the churning resilience that sets him free.
