About the Book:
In a review of the book, Elizabeth S. Gunn writes:
“Archana Sharma’s poetry is elegant, geometric and probes the spaces, limits and fields of human contact within architecture. The poetic voice is both personal and traverses boundaries between space and time. This is a thoughtful collection of verses built around an architect’s view of the world that frames us all. Pensive, sharp and probing.”
