Faces that Fled the Wind

By Alycia Pirmohamed

Faces that Fled the Wind leads us into a lush archipelago of spiritual and ecological longing. With a gorgeous lyricism, these poems breathe life in a cinematic evocation of languages lost, distances crossed, and splintered bodies that are pieced back together in the dark, archetypal woods of an imagined motherland. Alycia Pirmohamed assuredly weaves together stories that shimmer with a “glaucous bloom,” narratives of migration and the lingering wounds they leave behind on the page.” — Jay G Ying
