Lover, Where Are Your Eyes?

‘This debut volume by Asha is crammed with rich and richly surprising poems, all of them characterised by sharp-edged observation, vivid images, and many a quirky turn of phrase. These poems take all that is familiar about lyric poetry, and lift it to a new plane of operation, in voice and presence, shifts of tone, close critique, and unexpected twists of humour. And whether the poems are about overwatering plants, anticipating another war, or sex parties held by cockroaches, they are infused with ethical sensibility, and always generous encounters with the perplexing things that come at one in everyday life.’

Meet The Author

‘Asha Naznin’s poetic voice is unforgettable: unmistakably and uniquely hers. Her work fizzes with ideas and is electric with desire, dreamscape, alternate realities and marvellously puzzling human (and animal) drama and foibles. You will never read a less predictable, more entertaining book of poems.’
