New Book - Tikilluarit

I’m excited to announce a new book from Z’roah Press in New York. Tikilluarit sees me working once again with Roni Gross and Peter Schell, the team that created The Night Hunter.

A sonnet from my Greenlandic series, originally published in Modern Poetry in Translation as ‘The Hunter Teaches Me To Speak’, has been recast by Gross and Schell in a new, experimental setting.

Tikilluarit was created for An Inventory Of Al-Mutanabbi Street. This project, ‘both a lament and a commemoration of the singular power of words’, is an international response to the explosion of a car bomb in Al-Mutanabbi Street, the historic centre of bookselling in Baghdad and the heart and soul of the literary and intellectual community, in March 2007.

There’s more information on Tikilluarit here, and I will post details of events and exhibitions in the coming months.

I also recommend browsing the online portfolio of work by Roni Gross.

Looks beautifully made! Hope to see it sometime; is it in the John Rylands exhibition?


Tikilluarit will be in the sister exhibition at the Centre for Book Arts in New York, so sadly it won't be rubbing shoulders with your work. I'm hoping to make it up to the John Rylands exhibition soon.
