A poetry compilation recounting a woman's journey from self-loathing to self-acceptance, confusion to clarity, and bitterness to forgiveness

Following in the footsteps of such category killers as Milk and Honey and Whiskey Words & a Shovel I, Fariha Ro isi n's poetry book is a collection of her thoughts as a young, queer, Muslim femme navigating the difficulties of her intersectionality. Simultaneously, this compilation unpacks the contentious relationship that exists between Ro isi n and her mother, her platonic and romantic heartbreaks, and the cognitive dissonance felt as a result of being so divided among her broad spectrum of identities.

MEDIA REVIEWS
"A moving poetry collection by a queer Muslim writer exploring all the facets of her identity."--Domino
"[Roisin's] writing is intensely vulnerable and through revealing her own experience she reflects so many others."--Bustle
"When I first encountered Fariha's writing, I let out a sigh of relief. Was it refreshing? Yes. But there was something more. Her words allow us to feel visible. Fariha's writing has the power to heal and transform. She pulls you into her stories until you're at the edge of your seat, emphatically rooting for her subjects."--Rupi Kaur
"...a collection of poems that aims to heal..."--Vogue online
