The Naming by Aisyah Shah Idil: COMING SOON

The Naming by Aisyah Shah Idil: COMING SOON


The Naming by Aisyah Shah Idil is full of surprises as this remarkable debut collection pulls apart the threads of liminality and traces their paths across culture, family, and environment. Shah Idil’s experimental sense provides a transformative frame for an uncompromising lyricism, pushing outwards beyond the pages and prodding at the edges of memory and oblivion. Shah Idil’s work is magical and relentless, brimming with love.

Second edition.

Book. Perfect bound. 52pp.

Praise for The Naming

"Thinking and feeling through the work of Aisyah Shah Idil, Allison Gallagher and Emily Crocker at this particular moment of time, has opened space; activating language, words, grammar, paper and energy with their truths and generosity." - Frankie Hanman Siegersma, Australian Poetry
