Praise For The Far Mosque

The Far Mosque by Kazim Ali is a book in which the author has managed to render into the English language the universal inner voice. These poems talk to the reader from the realm in which we are all human. What a poet to be able to define spirit using the American vocabulary! These poems, so very different from my own, speak clearly to me. What a gift!”Lucille Clifton


"There is an intricate interweaving of themes, symbols, and allusions and leitmotifs that makes The Far Mosque, resonate with a sense of great drama... Ali’s strength lies in that inner music, where meanings reveal their deeper power." -Painted Bride Quarterly
