The author, born in Damascus, is a poet and a professor of comparative literature. She is an earthy, playful, and purposeful poet who writes with as much sass as sensitivity about what it's like to be a woman. Here are various poems, from 'Maryam's Labor' to 'The Fire of Hajar' to 'Sarah's Laugh' to 'Balqis Makes Solomon Sign a Pre-Nup'.
