Product Details

About the Author

Jasmine Donahaye is a creative writing lecturer at Swansea University, specializing in creative nonfiction and poetry. She is the author of the poetry collection "Misappropriations," which was shortlisted for the Jerwood Aldeburgh First Collection Prize, and the monograph "Whose People? Wales, Israel, Palestine."


' - beautifully-written poems - all easy control and allusive storytelling - ' Poetry 'This book, wrestling with the conflicting perspectives of nationality, displacement and religion, is steeped in Israeli and Palestinian history. Land is portrayed throughout as an untrustworthy burden, full of temporary demarcations, constantly under threat of change.' Charles Bainbridge, The Guardian 'She writes poetry that is itself barbaric - sophisticated, complex, informed, yet at its core, barbaric. The imagery is shockingly physical, often sexually violent, and the poetic structures themselves are more akin to those of primal myths than contemporary literature.' Jake Marmer, The Jewish Daily Forward 'There is a passionate anger here that refuses to attribute culpability uniquely to one group - With this new collection [Donahaye] establishes herself as an assured, challenging and brave voice, unafraid of confronting difficult issues or upsetting those with more sectarian views.' Sue Hubbard, Poetry London ' - beautifully-written poems - all easy control and allusive storytelling - Even when appearing merely wishful, Donahaye handles her subject with brisk particularity.' Daisy Fried, Poetry Longlisted for Wales Book of the Year
