This collection of poems by Kashmiri-American Agha Shahid Ali finds that contemporary history has forced him to return to his homeland, not with the ease of a tourist, but as a witness to the savagery visited upon Kashmir since the 1990 uprisings. These poems evoke the tragedy of his birthplace.

Industry Reviews

"Combining humane elegance and moral passion, Ali speaks for Kashmir in a large, generous, compassionate, powerful and urgent voice... Few poets in this country have such a voice or such a topic." -- Hayden Carruth "Extraordinary formal precision and virtuosity... This is poetry whose appeal is universal, its voice unerringly eloquent. A marvelous achievement." -- Edward Said
