About this item

Winner of the Sillerman First Book Prize for African Poets, Ethiopian American Mahtem Shiferraw’sFuchsia examines conceptions of the displaced, disassembled, and nomadic self. Embedded in her poems are colors, elements, and sensations that evoke painful memories related to deep-seated remnants of trauma, war, and diaspora. Yet rooted in these losses and dangers also lie opportunities for mending and reflecting, evoking a distinct sense of hope. Elegant and traditional, the poems inFuchsia examine what it means to both recall the past and continue onward with a richer understanding.
