Reviews

"Abani...explores place and humor, exile and freedom with poems of experience and imagination...[he] enters the wound with a boldness that avoids nothing. Highly recommended.--Library Journal "A beautiful work of art...elevates art and humanity above meanness and inhumanity.'"--World Literature Today "A brave and challenging book... Reading, I found myself in tears." --Sunday Tribune "Stunning poems... Abani conveys the experience in words shaped into art and made unforgettable by their quietness." --New Humanist
