Praise For…

'Sudeep Sen is a shining star in India's poetic firmament' William Dalrymple

'Poised, elegantly constructed poems which provide calm places for the reader to inhabit' Carol Ann Duffy, former UK Poet Laureate.

Deftly tackling urgent issues of climate change and the pandemic by subtly juxtaposing the sciences and the arts, Sudeep Sen’s 'Anthropocene' is one of the most important books of 2021. Jhilam Chattaraj, Hindustan Times
