About the Books

  • Rupi Kaur constantly embraces growth, and in “home body,” she walks readers through a reflective and intimate journey visiting the past, the present, and the potential of the self. home body is a collection of raw, honest conversations with oneself – reminding readers to fill up on love, acceptance, community, family, and embrace change. Illustrated by the author, themes of nature and nurture, light and dark, rest here.
  • Rupi’s long-awaited second collection of poetry, “sun and her flowers,” is a journey of wilting, falling, rooting, rising, and blooming. It is a celebration of love in all its forms. 
  • This book is divided into four chapters, and each chapter serves a different purpose. Deals with a different pain. Heals a different heartache. “milk and honey” takes readers through a journey of the most bitter moments in life and finds sweetness in them because there is sweetness everywhere if you are just willing to look.
