rupi kaur

Author

In an era when becoming an Instagram influencer is now a viable career option, rupi kaur leverages the power of the social media platform to disseminate her message, one that runs deeper than dreamy vacation and vibrant food photography: kaur, a Brampton, Ontario native, has become an international sensation for her poetry. Sparse and incredibly relatable, kaur’s words have resonated with women around the world, leading to the release of her first book in 2014, Milk and Honey, a collection of poetry that sold over two million copies and lived on the New York Times Best Sellers list for over 73 weeks. Nearly four years later, in October 2017, kaur released her second poetry collection, titled The Sun and Her Flowers. A week after the book was released, it ranked second on Amazon’s best-seller list, and within the first two weeks of publication, it was featured in the top ten of the New York Times Best Sellers list. To date, the book has sold over one million copies, and solidifies kaur’s status as the voice of the new generation.
