I also really loved the artwork, i think the cover and inside art is really beautiful and goes with the book contents really well. How to cure a Ghost is left me feeling very ambivalent, some poems gave me goosebumps, they felt true and vulnerable and strong while some others felt like they were written by a 13 year old angry person on tumblr.

The struggles she faced as a queer, young Muslim woman puts into focus the parallel strife of the everyday brown woman.

And 400,000 women were raped ( they were not known and never will be known … r emember us, like you’d remember white death).

The author speaks about her own experiences, and I feel I have no right to say if they deserve a three, four, five, star rating. Certains des poèmes étaient hyper poignants et émouvants, on ressent sa rage, sa haine, sa fierté, son amour. I think the book will resonate with anyone who has had to fight to be accepted - whether it’s self-acceptance or acceptance from people/society. If you’re like me, and often quick to dismiss poetry as a result of terrible required reading at school, please be reassured that there is some fucking awesome modern poetry available. Hotjar sets this cookie to know whether a user is included in the data sampling defined by the site's pageview limit.With that being said, most of the poems just end up lacking maturity and falling into every single postmodern poetry cliche imaginable. I can tell the poems are really personal and meaningful to the author and others with a similar experience.

Blaming the "bad white folk" is the same type of discrimination that Roisin herself rails against in this book. Róisín is an Australian-Canadian living in Brooklyn, and a lot of her writing explores the theme of identity and intersectionality – she’s a queer Muslim, she’s a woman of colour, and she’s a survivor. I feel that if this were more condensed, without the filler tumblr-esque poetry, it would be a true gem.I would highly recommend this collection to any fans of poetry , or just if you want a collection as a starting point i would recommend this one too. Payments made using National Book Tokens are processed by National Book Tokens Ltd, and you can read their Terms and Conditions here. i have read and enjoyed a few poetry collections over the last few years but this one certainly does stand out in the crowd. To be completely honest, so far I find myself finding bits and pieces of her works that are really nice; complimentary in a way. are very important and should still be addressed… i just don’t think this is how i’d like to read about them personally.
