The Very Selected: Mimi Khalvati


Product Details

This Very Selected pamphlet brings together short lyrics selected from Mimi Khalvati’s six previous collections, including several of her ghazals. These poems inhabit that liminal space of longing or existential homesickness, while also being in love with the given world. Rather than trying to hold the page, they yearn to be weightless enough to become part of the surrounding air, its ever-changing light and shade.
