This collection of poems by Kashmiri-American Agha Shahid Ali finds that contemporary history has forced him to return to his homeland, not with the ease of a tourist, but as a witness to the savagery visited upon Kashmir since the 1990 uprisings. These poems evoke the tragedy of his birthplace.

MEDIA REVIEWS
"Extraordinary formal precision and virtuosity. . . . This is poetry whose appeal is universal, its voice unerringly eloquent. A marvelous achievement." -- Edward Said
"Combining humane elegance and moral passion, Ali speaks for Kashmir in a large, generous, compassionate, powerful and urgent voice. . . . Few poets in this country have such a voice or such a topic." -- Hayden Carruth
