This a powerful career spanning collection by a poet who was tortured and jailed for eight years for his political activism in Morocco. The poetry is dark and unsettling but also beautiful and uplifting. Laabi’s voice is one of proud, even exuberant defiance. This collection is a punch to jaw, but the kind of punch that lets you know you’re ready to fight.
