Description

In her third poetry collection, Hijra, Hala Alyan creates poems of migration and flight reflecting and bearing witness to the haunting particulars in her transnational journey in addition to the ones of her mother, her aunts, and the feminine ancestors in Gaza and Syria.
 
The reader sees war, diaspora, and immigration, and hears the marginalized voices of ladies of color. The poems use lyrical diction and striking imagery to rouse the burden of an emotional and visceral journey. They grow and build in length and form, reflecting the gains the ladies within the poems make in re-creating selfhood through staying power and strength.
 
In prose, narrative, and confessional-style poems, Alyan reflects on how physical space is refashioned, transmitted, and remembered. Her voice is distinct, fresh, relevant, and alluring.
