The Promised Land: Poems from Itinerant Life

by André Naffis-Sahely - £7.99  Penguin Books Ltd (2017)
paperback    ISBN 13: 9780141984933 | ISBN 10: 0141984937

While half the world swept west,
we trickled eastward, one by one,
single-file, like fugitives. Next stop:
Abu Dhabi, where my father had a job,
 
and money, for the first time in years...

 
Flitting from the mud-soaked floors of Venice to the glittering, towering constructions of the Abu Dhabi of his childhood and early adulthood, from present-day London to North America, André Naffis-Sahely's bracingly plain-spoken first collection gathers portraits of promised lands and those who go in search of them: labourers, travellers, dreamers; the hopeful and the dispossessed.
