Summary
Mona Arshi's debut collection, 'Small hands', introduces a brilliant and compelling new voice. At the centre of the book is the slow detonation of grief after her brother's death, but her work focuses on the whole variety of human experience: pleasure, hardship, tradition, energised by language which is in turn both tender and risky. Often startling as well as lyrical, Arshi's poems resist fixity; there is a gentle poignancy at work here which haunts many of the poems. This is humane poetry. Arshi's is a daring, moving and original voice. - Publisher's description
