Internationally renowned writer, speaker, and poet Monica Bhide presents a beautifully complex and varied interpretation of seemingly commonplace objects and signs that reflect a universal truth. Stories revealed by the wrinkles on bed sheets and clothes… The paradox of a single drop of rain… The secrets and truths that shine through the cracks we try to hide behind…

With Telltales, Monica explores the themes of love, loss, sacrifice, faith, healing, and the exquisitely simple experiences that connect us to one another and a deeper understanding of life. From the red rain of Kerala to a bowl of broth that holds the memories of childhood, the mundane is transformed into the sublime in this collection of poems that will resonate and linger.

A reminder
that, maybe, just maybe
a miracle is
merely a touch away

I am so delighted to share some good news this morning. American University's undergrad class called "Writers in Print and Person," has picked Karma and the Art of Butter Chicken as one of their fall reads! I will be at the school on Oct 18th discussing the book with the students and their amazing professor Sandra Beasley! Thank you for this huge honor, Sandra. I could not have imagined it in my wildest dreams!
Thank you all for supporting my book and my work!
