“I want to write to all the corners of the far-flung universe,” Indran Amirthanayagam announces in “Marked,” and accomplishes this goal magnificently in The Migrant States. These poems engendered by “Heart and Memory,” are hellos and goodbyes, obituaries, salutations, and celebrations addressed to his children, his friends and heroes, his lovers, Walt Whitman, and any other fortunate reader who strays into his orbit.”

–Terence Winch

Migrant States is a book where passion and memory meet, a book that calls for open borders of the mind, it is a book that knows that everyone and no one is a foreigner on this planet and that the country of the poets has no customs. With Whitman as his interlocutor, Indran Amirthanayagam takes us on the journey with no return, where our ticket is a moving and beautiful song ”
