APPLE BOOKS REVIEW
Milk and Honey, Rupi Kaur’s self-published debut, was the rarest of sensations: a poetry collection that sold millions. Two years and one 25th birthday later, she returns with The Sun and Her Flowers, a slender volume that spotlights the ways Kaur has matured. Fans of her spare, deeply personal poems—which sweep from heartache and trauma to recovery and empowerment—will find much to admire and relate to here, but Kaur's also keen to investigate experiences outside of her own. The verses about her mother’s arranged marriage and fragmented English are particularly rich in feeling and empathy.
