Publisher Comments:

Poetry. Middle Eastern Studies. "Al Andalus--a unique cultural convergence in human time where myth hovers the way moths are drawn to lampshine, and in her luminous, spare language, Shadab Zeest Hashmi catches its essence: attar of memory, the perfume of peace, sweet rising dough of dailiness; at the end, smoke rising, the reek of war, useless keys, exile, sorrow distilled and deepened by the presence--in these deeply felt, lovely poems--of what feels newly lost"--Eleanor Wilner.
