Birthright | George Abraham
post image
Pickpick

George Abraham‘s Birthright offers a stirring glimpse of the traumas carried in our blood that generate ripples across space and time. In turns wondrously eloquent and refreshingly acerbic, Birthright swiftly challenges the narrative often spun by the media.

Noor Hindi‘s Diary of a Filthy Woman provides a small taste of the everyday obstacles experienced by immigrants and women of color navigating a world they feel excluded from. Having no adequate representation of their identities now, they must “carve [their] own scripture” to live a life abiding by their own terms.

ElaineR Never mind the book, that coffee looks sublime! 3y
nuriali @ElaineR haha, pride myself on my ability to make unearthly coffee! I used Colombian medium roasted coffee beans, edible rose petals, and honey, and put them all in a french press. Oh, y'all need milk and a pump milk frother (Amazon 10 bucks) and then you're ready to serve, put a few petals ontop like above!No one is going to love you like you love you ❣️ 3y
ElaineR @AliNuri I'm even more impressed now I know you made it yourself. Sounds delicious. Also, "No one is going to love you like you love you". Ain't that the truth. 3y

In Cara Dees‘ Exorcism Lessons in the Heartland, language and memory hover unflinchingly above the margins between the knowable and unknowable. Set amidst a backdrop of Midwestern farmlands, Dees parses the visceral details surrounding the loss of both parents, recollections and dreamscapes achingly entwining on the page. #poetry

Devotions stands as a quiet meditation on the blameless act of being in a world that is preoccupied with doing. Through the darkest happenings of today‘s world, Mary Oliver‘s poetry continues to shine brightly and reminds us what it means to be present, appreciative, and most importantly, ourselves. #poetry full review below!

Deaf Republic: Poems | Ilya Kaminsky
post image
Pickpick

Deaf Republic delivers a captivating and timeless yet urgently necessary message on the power small rebellions have in a country that oftentimes chooses willful (and prideful) ignorance over ethical self-reflection. Through Kaminsky‘s haunting verse, silence reveals itself to be tripartite: the silence of the devoted, the silence of the departed, and the silence of the defiant whose actions speak louder than words. Review: ali-nuri.com #poetry

Nute Excellent review! 3y

In Her Feminine Sign | Dunya Mikhail
post image
Pickpick

In Her Feminine Sign is a must-read masterwork that defies the twin cruelties of oppression and apathy, unraveling the layers of chaos to find the remnants of unwavering hope. This collection poses a measured, tactful protest against the injustices of the world, reminding us that, turbulent as it may be, humankind has not yet lost its humanity. The birds may, still, find their way home again.
