The Promised Land : Poems from Itinerant Life Paperback / softback

Paperback / softback

Description

While half the world swept west,we trickled eastward, one by one,single-file, like fugitives.

Next stop:Abu Dhabi, where my father had a job,and money, for the first time in years . . . __________________________________________________Flitting from the mud-soaked floors of Venice to the glittering, towering constructions of the Abu Dhabi of his childhood and early adulthood, from present-day London to North America, Andre Naffis-Sahely's bracingly plain-spoken first collection gathers portraits of promised lands and those who go in search of them: labourers, travellers, dreamers; the hopeful and the dispossessed. 'Naffis-Sahely's poems usher the reader in to a world of reversals and risk . . . His narratives hold memory to account'DAVID HARSENT
