Staff Reviews

I first loved this collection for its incredible range, its humor and sterling intimacies. With Trump’s threats on Iran, immigrants, I see it now as a promise between women: our grace to build and rebuild a life wherever we land should define global history. Women-- not race, not war-- but women, building lives, write the next chapter.

— a.c.


Persis Karim collects poems and prose by women of exile and immigration.
