Purple Poppy Press presents a collection of poetry by Fauzia Rafique, author of Skeena. Here's what Joanne Arnott, author of Wiles of Girlhood and Mother Time has to say about the book:
In Holier Than Life, Fauzia Rafique presents English poems written in three languages, to blend the voices of self in a full and unified presentation. From soft intimacies to polemic, from private indignities to those that are the shared burden of at least half the planet, the poet gives voice to self in a wide sweep of style and metaphor, revelation and critique, visiting a kaleidoscope of concerns and blending literary values that, ultimately, express a single flame of being. Intelligence, embodiment, engagement: these are the aspects of woman that surge to the fore and fall back again, as poem by poem, the author moves us through the vastness of the world.
