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.
