Children of air india review – Globe and Mail

In this book, her first, facts meet fiction with devastating scenarios, such as what the plane ride was like: An eager boy in the back row awaits a tour of the cockpit; a mother tires of her demanding little son, dressed in OshKosh overalls.

One poem remembers a victim, a soft-spoken ice-hockey player who loved her brother’s laugh, and graduated from Grade 8 the day before the flight. Another imagines the terrible fall and quotes an embalmer: “Damage to the tummy from all that spiralling.”
