About the author

Abdourahman A. Waberi is a novelist, essayist, poet, and professor of literature at George Washington University. He is the author of The Land without Shadows, In the United States of Africa, and Passage of Tears, the last also published by Seagull Books. Nancy Naomi Carlson is an award-winning author and translator.


Offers a collection of poetry, which takes you to unexpected spaces-in exile, in the muezzin's call, and where morning dew is "sucked up by the eye of the sun-black often, pink from time to time." These poems strongly condemn the civil wars that have plagued East Africa and advocate tolerance and peace.
