Reviews
"These stirring poems, originally written by a 14th century Persian mystic, get me closer to the divine, and more immediately, than anything in the world.... Open to any page to be transported into magic."
--Elizabeth Gilbert, Bustle

"There are universes inside Hafiz, a lineage of masters. Daniel Ladinsky follows the playfulness; the rascal moves well."
--Coleman Barks

"With this stunning collection of Hafiz's most intimate poems, Ladinsky has succeeded brilliantly in presenting the essence of one of Islam's greatest poetic and religious voices. Each line of The Gift imparts the wonderful qualities of this master Sufi poet and spiritual teacher: encouragement, an audacious love that touches lives, profound knowledge, generosity, and a sweet, playful genius unparalleled in world literature."
