In her first collection of poetry, Fortesa explores love, loss, cultural identity, and change. With her gift for compassion and insight, Fortesa's poems are at once both gentle and cutting.
“I used to not really enjoy reading poetry. Then I discovered Fortesa Latifi's poetry, and that changed completely. I identify with so many of her poems. Each one of them evokes a particular emotion or memory. She manages to write in a way that's simplistic, but beautiful. I can't recommend her poetry enough!”
