Publisher's Summary

Fresh from her Tony-Award winning stint in Russell Simmons Presents Def Poetry Jam on Broadway and a subsequent 51-city tour, Suheir Hammad has written her first collection of poetry since Born Palestinian, Born Black, published when she was just 22 years old. ZaatarDiva is poetry about love, politics, and art, all coming out of Hammad's bag of zaatar. The poems in this collection are at once seductive and dangerous; they are possessed by a singular lyricism and awareness, and her call to action has a major presence in her work.

What the Critics Say

"Suheir Hammad, a Palestinian from Brooklyn with formidable lyrical gifts and a distaste for always being seen as 'the exotic', lovemaking is continually disrupted by flashing thoughts of the traumatic events and brutality unfolding around the globe." (Chicago Sun Times)
