‘Outside of a dog, a book is a man's best friend. Inside of a dog, it's too dark to read.’ – Groucho Marx
Rupi Kaur is a #1 New York Times bestselling author and illustrator of two collections of poetry. She started drawing at the age of five when her mother handed her a paintbrush and said—draw your heart out. Rupi views her life as an exploration of that artistic journey. After completing her degree in rhetoric and professional writing, she published her first collection of poems, Milk and Honey, in 2015, which quickly became an international best seller. It graced the New York Times bestseller list for over a year, selling over 1.5 million copies.
Milk and Honey has been translated into over 23 languages. Her long-awaited untitled second collection continues her exploration with themes of love, loss, trauma, healing, and femininity. Along with writing and illustrating, Rupi has performed her poetry across the world. Her photography and art direction are warmly embraced and her poetry and prose are breaking international boundaries.
