Araby by Eric Ormsby

348

Araby is a new collection of poems on the adventures, dreams, hopes, and imaginings of two singular characters: Jaham, the “Father of Clouds,” a semi-nomadic poet and auto mechanic, and his inseparable sidekick Bald Adham, also a virtuoso mechanic as well as pillar of Muslim piety.

With sly linguistic exuberance these poems recount the lives and deaths of Jaham and Adham and evoke the difficult terrain they share, not only with camels, wolves, and vultures, but with the mysterious jinn, beings of pure fire.
