I received this new book in the mail yesterday and read it through over dinner and before bed. Poems by a Palestinian-American physician, winner of the recent Yale Series of Younger Poets. It's a lovely collection. The poems remind me a bit of Li-Young Lee. The intro by Gluck is a bit long-winded and incomprehensible. Just go straight to the poems. And have a cup of tea at your side (you'll see what I mean).
