Acclaimed poet Kiriti Sengupta curates 39 writers and poets from India, the United States, and the United Kingdom in a prose and poetry collection, titled Shimmer Spring. This all-color lavishly illustrated book explores the writers’ perception of light—how they intuit its source and proclaim their realizations. Sengupta, in his introduction to the anthology, writes, “It is imperative to recognize the light that allows a respite from prevailing darkness. Respite isn’t the right word, I guess. Radiance liberates us from the murkiness. One must remember, it’s the shimmer that sustains lucency.” Both emerging and established voices like Sudeep Sen, Sanjeev Sethi, Mamang Dai, Shikhandin, Tim Kahl, Alan Britt, Usha Akella, Joan Kwon Glass, among others, have been included in this coffee-table book. Backed by artist Pintu Biswas and designer Bitan Chakraborty, Shimmer Spring bears a significant archival value worthy of critical studies.
