Sneha Madhavan-Reese’s imagery is lyric, potent, and painterly, probing the darkness of a sometimes paradoxical world. Perhaps the most moving work in the book shares the journey of a new mother and her reconnection with a changed world. These poems of family and generational memory are incisive, mature, confident, and savvy in their awareness of the multiple contradictions of cultural desire. Madhavan-Reese is an exciting new voice in Canadian poetry.

There is much in Sneha Madhavan-Reese’s Variations in Gravity that captivates: the precision of her intellect, the range of her subject material, the care with which she uses language, but perhaps above all else, her compassion, something we’d all like to see more of in the world.
