‘Eat the Sky, Drink the Ocean was delicious! It is filled with empowering short stories regarding feminism and the environment… This is one of those books that I want on my shelf at home, so I can re-read it over and over again.’ – Goodreads
‘The tapestry of Eat The Sky is essentially feminist, but it weaves in issues of food security, environmental destruction, class barriers, social justice, consumerism and human rights to create lustrous narratives… the anthology stands out for its plucky writing and bold imagery.’ LiveMint
