Tartan and Turban by Bashabi Fraser
Sorry, this product is not currently available to order


Let the powder clouds of Holi - the festival of colour - cover you in purple, pink and green. Be mesmerised by the proud hooded cobra weaving its charm. Join a wedding wrapped up in reams of yellow silk and incense and alive with the swish of green kilts and the sound of bagpipes. Watch the snow melt on the crest of soft dawns and feel the slash of rain against your numb cheek as the wind races across from the North Sea. Read Bashabi Fraser's poetry and experience a swirl of emotions and images. A Bengali poet living in Scotland, Bashabi Fraser creatively spans the different worlds she inhabits, celebrating the contrasts of the two countries whilst also finding commonality. Focussing on clear themes and issues - displacement, removal, belonging, identity, war - her poetry is vibrant with feeling and comes alive in an outrageous game of sound patterns.
