This is a poetry distinctive in syntax and chiaroscuro imagery which echoes its Eastern origins. Our often lonely philosopher-poet is obliged to remember; nostalgic but without realism to know that the beauty of The Thousand And One Night is fading.
Mal Morgan

...this poetry choreographs new figures, testifying to the creative impulses which can fortuitously be released by migration and exile. Shaped in another literary tradition, another continent, the lyricism engendered in these pages makes our familiar language sing with unfamiliar cadences.
