War / Torn
A poetry collection by Hasan Namir.
Lambda Literary Award-winner Hasan Namir's debut collection of poetry, War / Torn, is a brazen and lyrical interrogation of religion and masculinity — the performance and sense of belonging they delineate and draw together. Namir summons prayer, violence and the sensuality of love, revisiting tenets of Islam and dictates of war to break the barriers between the profane and the sacred. (From Book*Hug)
