Iman Mersal

Author, Arabic
Iman Mersal is among the most celebrated contemporary poets in the Arab world, emerging from the Egyptian avant-garde movement of the 1990s. She is the author of four collections of verse and three works of prose, including How to Mend: Motherhood and Its Ghosts, a hybrid of cultural criticism and personal memoir. Her poetry and nonfiction work interrogate and reconstruct memory, identity, and personal history.
