Did you miss the recap show last week, cohosted with Rajiv Mohabir? Check out Rajiv's segment of the show here including readings from his just-released, award-winning second book of poetry _The Cowherd's Son_ plus an interview with the author. And because we're It's Lit--featuring writers to love and the music their work plays best around--Rajiv also curated some really dope and dynamic music to be played around his poetry, including Bollywood music, chutney music, and Rajiv's version of a song from his Aji that is so, so beautiful. Enjoy!
