I'm presently reading a delicious book written by the Palestinian poet Shatha Abu Hnaish titled A Love That Hovers Like a Bedeviling Mosquito, translated by Francesca Bell and Noor Asder Al A'bed.
These poems are short and awash with a voice that is packed with image & emotion. Translating these poems into English so that more are touched by them is an enormous literary gift.
After the first reading, this is a great night stand book for when you have five or ten minutes to read and meditate before lights out.
