Suhasini Mukherjee's Luth: A Place Called Home brims with poems and words that cannon solidly into your gut. The poetry is in free-verse style and encapsulates perfectly some of the subject matters that she touches upon throughout her chapbook, those subjects being love, life, and death. In only thirty pages she manages to find a way to crawl into your brain and dance around in that gray matter, in the best of all ways. A number of her poems are on the leaner side, but still a profound air winds around them.

I couldn't believe at first that what I was reading was coming from a seventeen-year-old person. In Luth: A Place Called Home, penned by author Suhasini Mukherjee, the words in general strike me as coming from someone much older, and perhaps she is gifted with that of an old soul. I have many favorite lines, but one of my very favorites is: "my fingers are bleeding and I am happy." I just think that's so wonderfully lovely and odd all at the same time, which is difficult to pull off; all of those different sensations you feel as you read. There is absolutely no doubt in my mind that she is destined for publishing great works, including Luth: A Place Called Home. If you are a lover of poetry, or simply a lover of words in general, I recommend that you read this book. You will find yourself in a whole other state of being that you might not even be able to explain to yourself.
