Tour: The Coconut Girl



The Coconut Girl by Sunita Thind
Poetry Anthology

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 multicultural 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.

The Coconut Girl will tug at your heart strings. Starting from childhood, we get a glimpse into Punjabi culture from the viewpoint of a little girl growing into a woman. Navigating difficult situations including cancer, this is an emotional journey from start to finish. You can feel Thind flowing off the page and sharing herself with you in each poem. The emotion that is conveyed through her poetry makes this a powerful read. It’s been awhile since my heart felt so wrapped up in a book I was reading.
