Hello, Sunshines, Today I have the huge pleasure to be featuring; The Coconut Girl by Sunita Thind. Full disclosure first, this post was supposed to be a cover reveal on Tuesday, 1st September 2020, unfortunately, due to certain sad event’s I was unable to stick to my day (full details can be found here – A Quick Note) huge apologies to Kelly at Love Book Tours and Sunita, I promised to feature the book so here it is, better late then never I suppose. I do hope you all love the sound of the book as much as I do!

The Coconut Girl by Sunita Thind

The Coconut Girl is a collection of poems containing material that is from the Indian, female point of view with an insight into Punjabi culture. We also follow the author through the hallucinogenic state of the brain following cancer treatment, and in her experience of life in multi cultural Britain.

The protagonist in the poems is at the same time deeply vulnerable and strongly independent. Overall her strength of character shines through

The Coconut Girl features poetry of deep imagery, not least in some of the poems exploring the experience of the female body post-operatively, such as in My Womb Is A Park Of Carnage.
