Rupi Kaur BookRupi Kaur reveals the cover and title of her new book

 

the sun and her flowers is the second collection of poetry and illustrations by Kaur, whose first collection, milk and honey, was a #1 New York Times and international bestseller and has sold nearly 2 million copies worldwide.

 

"I feel beyond excited and blessed to take readers on this new journey with me," said Rupi. "This new book has had so much heart poured into it. I have been working on this vision for three years and now it's come to life."

Divided into five chapters, this highly anticipated collection guides readers on a journey of wilting, falling, rooting, rising, and blooming in a celebration of love in all its forms. It is a vibrant and transcendent journey about growth and healing, ancestry and honouring one's roots, expatriation and rising up to find a home within yourself. Designed by Rupi in her signature style with a keen eye for elegance and simplicity, the sun and her flowers continues Rupi's exploration of themes of love, loss, trauma, healing, and femininity.

 

this is the recipe of life

said my mother

as she held me in her arms as i wept

think of those flowers you plant

in the garden each year

they will teach you

that people too

must wilt

fall

root

rise

in order to bloom

 

"Rupi connects with her readers in an extraordinarily personal way; her work empowers, inspires and restores hope," said Kirsty Melville, president and publisher of AMP. "She has forged an international community of passionately engaged readers who enthusiastically await her new collection."

 

A breakout literary phenomenon, milk and honey continues to captivate readers nearly two years after its release. Her transformative poems and drawings deliver a message of hope, healing, and empowerment to readers around the globe, as milk and honey has been translated into more than 24 languages. In addition to writing and illustrating, Rupi performs her poetry to capacity audiences, and has received international acclaim.
