Description

WINNER of the INTERNATIONAL GRIFFIN POETRY PRIZE

WINNER of the BEST TRANSLATED BOOK AWARD

FINALIST for the 2020 LAMBDA LITERARY AWARD

On October 27, 2003, Adnan received a post card of a palm tree from the poet Khaled Najar, who she had met in the late seventies in Tunisia, sparking a collection of poems that would unspool over the next decade in a continuous discovery of the present moment. Originally written in French, these poems collapse time into single crystallized moments then explode outward to take in the scope of human history. In Time, we see an intertwining of war and love, coffee and bombs, empathetic observation and emphatic detail taken from both memory and the present of the poem to weave a tapestry of experience in non-linear time.
