Hinge by Alicia Pirmohamed
PBS Summer Pamphlet Choice 2020
Available for pre-order until further notice.
This imaginative pamphlet carefully guides the reader on their own distinctive journey to those other-lands created by migration. Alycia Pirmohamed’s poetry, often situated in the surreal, uses the metaphor of landscape and the natural world to reflect on wider themes of belonging, cultural dissonance, and homeland. There is a quiet urgency in these poems, engaging with the experience of both the loss, and the discovery of, language and place.
