Publisher Comments:

Fady Joudahand#8217;s The Earth in the Attic is the 2007 winner of the Yale Series of Younger Poets competition. In his poems Joudah explores big themesand#8212;identity, war, religion, what we hold in commonand#8212;while never losing sight of the quotidian, the specific. Contest judge Louise Gland#252;ck describes the poet in her Foreword as and#8220;that strange animal, the lyric poet in whom circumstance and profession . . . have compelled obsession with large social contexts and grave national dilemmas.and#8221; She finds in his poetry an incantatory quality and concludes, and#8220;These are small poems, many of them, but the grandeur of conception is inescapable. The Earth in the Attic is varied, coherent, fierce, tender; impossible to put down, impossible to forget.and#8221;
