Alyan, a Palestinian-American, writes relentlessly, with a deep passion and intense intimacy, tracing lines of global issues into personal spaces. Established, award-winning poets are unanimous in their praise.
Naomi Shihab Nye raves, "Don't miss the dazzling Hala Alyan. Wow. When she says "the poetry like a spear," she isn't kidding."
Chitra Divakaruni notes, "Hala Alyan's poems startle us with their beautiful, enigmatic images and capture us with their passionate engagement with the world. A powerful debut."
And Graywolf Press poet Fred Marchant points out, "For all the stunning angularity in this vision, we do not doubt that what we are seeing and sensing here is a surprising, sharp-edged sense of the real, of a world that had been there all along, just waiting for this poet and these poems to reveal. Start to finish, these poems convey a singular vision and represent an important new voice in the international poetry arena."
