Book Launch: Hanan Issa’s ‘My Body Can House Two Hearts’
Hanan Issa’s debut pamphlet skips across the fragile boundaries of history, culture, relationships, and language.
‘My Body Can House Two Hearts’ is a celebration of women’s redemptive interdependency and the rejection of patriarchal power.
Mererid Hopwood says “This unique collection shows that Welsh, Arabic and English flow side by side and sometimes share the same waters.”
Shagufta Iqbal says: “On putting her collection down, I feel as though I have woken from a dream. It is the kind of work I wish I had written.”
