Poetry. South Asia Studies. TRYING TO SAY GOODBYE is the long anticipated third collection of poems by Adil Jussawalla, who continues to be a seminal figure in post-independence Indian poetry. Jussawalla's is a sharp yet intimate voice, fearless but melancholic, marked by a darting, wily syntax, bristling rhymes, and an original prosody. Here, he moves across time to address an array of histories, both personal and public. He lifts from and pays homage to poets, artists, drunks, vagabonds, and eccentrics, and writes through the deep materiality of everyday objects-a wristwatch, a radio, clay, wood, marble, a cloud, a fly-in reaching toward a further scale.

About the Author:

Adil Jussawalla (b. 1940) is a seminal figure in post- independence Indian poetry. After studying and working in England, he returned to India for good in the 1970s. Of Jussawalla's precocious first collection, Land's End (1962), Dom Moraes wrote that it "seemed [to him], and to many other poets in England, one of the most brilliant first books published since the war." His second book Missing Person, published in Bombay in 1976, is undergoing a critical renaissance in India and abroad following the re-publication in full of its central long poem sequence in The Bloodaxe Book of Contemporary Indian Poets (2009). Jussawalla was a founding member along with Arvind Krishna Mehrotra, Arun Kolatkar and Gieve Patel of the poets' publishing co-operative Clearing House, and the editor of an anthology of 1960s experimental Indian writing translated from many different Indian languages (New Writing from India Penguin, 1974) that is still considered indispensible today.
