This first book of poetry by Niloofar Fanaiyan is about transit as both a physical and conceptual suspension of time and space. It touches on the intersections of people, place, culture and history experienced by travellers: the feeling of being stuck on the periphery while life continues elsewhere; and the possibilities inherent in every journey.
‘Fanaiyan’s poetry is scattered with jewel bright images – ethereal and sumptuous but also prosaic and authentic.’ – Anita Patel
