Milk and Honey by Rupi Kaur

"Milk and Honey" is a collection of poetry and prose written by Canadian author Rupi Kaur. The book was first self-published by the author in 2014, and later picked up by Andrews McMeel Publishing in 2015. The book deals with themes of love, loss, trauma, healing, and femininity, and has been well-received by critics and readers alike.

"Milk and Honey" is divided into four chapters, each dealing with a different theme: "the hurting," "the loving," "the breaking," and "the healing." The book is written in a simple and accessible style, and many of the poems are accompanied by Kaur's own illustrations. The book has a strong feminist perspective, and deals with issues such as sexual assault, body image, and gender equality.

The book has been a commercial success, with over 3 million copies sold worldwide, and has been translated into over 30 languages. It has also been on the New York Times bestseller list for over two years. Rupi Kaur has been credited for bringing poetry to the mainstream and for making it more accessible to a wider audience.

"Milk and Honey" has received positive reviews from critics, who have praised its raw and honest approach to dealing with difficult themes. The book has been hailed as a powerful and important work that deals with issues that are often not discussed openly. It has been described as a "survivor's guide" and a "must-read" for anyone who has experienced trauma or is looking for inspiration and hope.

Rupi Kaur has since then published other books such as "The Sun and Her Flowers" and "Home Body" which have also been critically acclaimed and bestsellers. She is also active on social media and continues to publish poetry and prose on her Instagram account.
