Produktbeschreibung
A new collection from award-winning poet Zeina Azzam, poet laureate of Alexandria, Virginia. SOME THINGS NEVER LEAVE YOU is Palestinian-American poet Zeina Azzam's long-awaited debut full-length collection. In the words of poet James Crews, "The poems of Zeina Azzam, even as they long for the color and taste of lost places, make a new home in the fullness of each moment, seeking justice and honor, wonder and awe, at every turn." "Azzam writes with heart and with an ear keenly tuned to the rhythms of displacement and loss. Her poems braid sorrow and hope together with the silk thread of her mother's prayer, "khayr inshallah! Goodness, God willing!" Through her childhood memories in Arab cities to the repeated farewells and departures of exile, Azzam's poems alternately mourn and celebrate the wonders of life; a child's fascination with language, the estrangement of a sibling, the sensual pleasures of a resplendent meal, and the promise of renewed love. These poems are "a hedge against hardship, /an incantation" and their music will stay with you."--Lena Khalaf Tuffaha, author of Kaan and Her Sisters and Water & Salt Poetry. Middle Eastern Studies.
