About the Author
When she was five, her mother handed her a paintbrush and said, “draw your heart out.” Rupi Kaur views her life as an exploration of that artistic journey. Through her poetry and illustrations, she engages with love, loss, trauma, healing, and femininity. For Rupi, writing has always been a collective experience. At the age of seventeen she began sharing her work. The stage was her first love and spoken word is where she found her voice. Rupi pursued her love for language by studying rhetoric at the University of Waterloo. She began working on her first collection milk and honey, which eventually became a New York Times bestseller. Rupi’s passion is expression. For her that expression takes many forms. Her photography and art direction are brought to various spaces around the world and her poetry and prose are breaking international boundaries.

I read many reviews before deciding to purchase this book by Many people said that it was cliché and it had already been done. Also a lot of other people said that the poems were too simplistic with not a lot of theme behind them.
However I have never come across a book like this. I loved how it was split into four sections. Those four sections are titled The hurting, the loving, the breaking, the healing. And many ways I do see how people say that this is simplistic. But these themes basically come down to the human experience. Who has not hurt? Especially from childhood experiences that we may or may not realize molded who we are. Who has not loved? Who has not been hurt by that loving? And if you can get to it there is a healing process.
I personally can relate to this book on so many different levels. I can relate to it based on family experiences, friendship's, intimate partners, and work associates.
In a way and made me feel like rupi kaur was able to not bury these feelings like I have done for so long but actually put them into words and illustrations. I think that takes courage and probably a great amount of sacrifice. I only wish I could do something as simplistic as this that has so much meaning.
Yes, it is a book of poems split into four sections. But those poems interweave and tell a story. What I really like about it is that you can kind of assume it's a memoir but you don't really know the true facts. It's almost like you have to fill it in for yourself. This is what I loved most about it because I could do that with my own experiences.
It is not an expensive book and I was able to read it within one hour, and go back to it multiple times especially the section on the healing. It may be simple and not as sophisticated as intellectuals would like poetry to be however it made in effect on me and I do think it is worth reading.
Can you give up one hour of your life to read this book with an open mind and realize how emotions and experiences truly shape who we are?
I encourage you to read this book with an open mind and even purchase it for friends that you know are either struggling loving hurting or healing. And isn't that everyone? Can't you see how everyone is experiencing one of these things right now?
It hit me so deeply that it is actually helping me on my own healing knowing that I am not alone. And that is ONE of the greatest human sufferings-loneliness. whenever I feel lonely I picked up this book and read it to remind myself that there are others out there suffering much more than I am and it gives me a great sense of gratitude.
