The Promised Land: Poems from Itinerant Life

by André Naffis-Sahely
£7.99   paperback  Penguin Books Ltd (2017)

The Promised Land: Poems from Itinerant Life by André Naffis-Sahely 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.
