'This first book of poetry by Niloofar Fanaiyan is about transit as both a physical and conceptual suspension of time and space. It touches on the intersections of people, place, culture and history experienced by travellers:  the feeling of being stuck on the periphery while life continues elsewhere;  and the possibilities inherent in every journey.' (Publication summary)
