A poetry compilation recounting a woman's journey from self-loathing to self-acceptance, confusion to clarity, and bitterness to forgiveness Following in the footsteps of such category killers as Milk and Honey and Whiskey Words & a Shovel I, Fariha Ro isi n's poetry book is a collection of her thoughts as a young, queer, Muslim femme navigating the difficulties of her intersectionality.
Simultaneously, this compilation unpacks the contentious relationship that exists between Ro isi n and her mother, her platonic and romantic heartbreaks, and the cognitive dissonance felt as a result of being so divided among her broad spectrum of identities.
