Flesh & Paper weaves a sensual tapestry of the life and writing of Indian lesbian poet and writer, Suniti Namjoshi. Born into an Indian royal family, Suniti now resides in England. Her poems, fables, and novels (Feminist Fables, Conversations of a Cow) are characterized by her wry and satirical humor, informed by both a lesbian consciousness and a deep Indian cultural framework.
