"These poems offer a window onto the sensibility of a modern American Muslim, with unflinching honesty and richly informed compassion. The great humanistic tradition of poetry known in Arabic and other Eastern languages here finds a contemporary English voice, which will be recognized like a lost friend who has unaccountably been rediscovered."—Carl W. Ernst, William R. Kenan Junior Distinguished Professor of Religious Studies, UNC-Chapel Hill
This dazzling and moving new collection of poems addresses faith, love, politics, and Islam in the twenty-first century.
