Hassan Al Nawwab is a former Iraqi soldier who came to Australia after the war with his family 20 years ago. With devastating simplicity, these imagistic poems speak of war and terror, of homesickness in exile, the blessings of peace and the pain of belonging. The collection is in two parts, ‘Tree Flying’ and ‘Diaspora’, and each poem is presented with its counterpart in Arabic on the opposite page, as translated from English by the poet himself.
