Constellations Of My Body
Jessica Mehta’s poetry collection Constellations Of My Body
Jessica Mehta is poet who writes without shame about body, race, and belonging. There’s both an unflinching boldness and an unexpected tenderness to the way she treats the rich cast within these pages — the ghosts of past selves, lost loves, and departed family. Constellations of My Body takes readers on an open-hearted journey through life’s fires asking what we inherit and what we make ourselves, what it means to be native, to be other, to feel lost and, ultimately, to belong.
