Never Mind: Twenty Poems and a Story
Taha Muhammad Ali writes in a forceful and direct style, with disarming humor and unflinching, at times painful, honesty--the poetry's apparent simplicity and homespun truths concealing the subtle grafting of classical Arabic and colloquial forms of expression. In Israel, in the West Bank and Gaza, and in Europe, audiences have been powerfully moved by Taha Muhammad Ali's poems of political complexity and humanity. Never Mind is the poet's first collection to appear in English. Introduction by Gabriel Levin. --Ibis Editions.
