A Silence You Can Carry by Hibaq Osman
A Silence You Can Carry stands as a searing debut collection from a startlingly brave new talent. The delicate and almost effortless poetry of Hibaq Osman blends everyday objects and movements into monumental invocations. The collection is filled with beautifully woven observations that are centered on love and loss, family relationships, identity and womanhood.
“Hibaq Osman holds our eyes on the page as tightly as the ears she has captivated on stage. A beautiful, heart-rending debut full of love, despair and courage.” Sabrina Mahfouz
