In the candy pink hush
of this room—we gather around
a table scattered with teacups,
scruffy magazines and an
unfinished jigsaw puzzle …

From the afterword:

‘All of us are wrapped in our stories—in the prosaic and exquisite, in ordinary moments and complex relationships, in our history and our present lives. We are clothed in hope and loss, in happiness and sorrow, in anger and fear, in love and yearning. We all wear the common garment of humanity.’

In A Common Garment, Anita Patel reminds us that nothing is ordinary. These intensely sensuous poems are rich in flavour, scent, colour, and the sound and feel of languages that inhabit the body and shape our unique selves. The common garments here are those which we wear to signify the roles we choose and the roles we are expected to adopt: but more than this, they are the trappings of a shared humanity that we recognise through all social and cultural contingencies. Enamel-bright, and warm as a quickened pulse, this collection offers a tactile and resonant affirmation of all that makes the common so vital. – Oz Hardwick
