"Aditi Rao ’s writing is imbued with the attentiveness of a lepidopterist, the tenderness of an epicurean and the quiet, unflinching fortitude one associates with surgeons on the battlefront. The frontlines are those of attrition and loss — of the body, of memory, of time and space, and of love – where the poems themselves are acts of resistance, of survival, and, ultimately, of celebration and transcendence. A warning: The Fingers Remember can enter and occupy crannies of the reader ’s mind, humming reminders that are at once unnervingly intimate yet strangely new. And it stays." — Karthika Nair
