Book to Buy

Looking for a great book for your own personal enjoyment, to give as a great gift, or to keep around on the coffee table? The Peacock's Egg (available at Amazon.com) is a collection of ancient Sanskrit poems translated into English. Many are along the theme of love and sex and, despite their age, can be very racy, so I wouldn't recommend it as a gift for parents or teachers. For a SO, a friend, or an admirer of literature, however, this book can make a very sophisticated present.

An example of one of its tamer selections:

My husband
before leaving on a journey
is still in the house speaking
to the gods and already
separation is climbing like
bad monkeys to the windows
