Water & Salt

Lena Khalaf Tuffaha

“Aside from wheat, essential ingredients for making bread are water and salt. And in Lena Tuffaha’s luminous poems, she provides the necessary words to feed our humanity. The poems in Water & Salt are fearless and frank. They speak of a place where a phone call announces doom and where ‘portraits find their frames.’ But always, despite the violence and war, in the music of Tuffaha’s poetry there is a clear summons, beckoning us to join in the feast of her language. These are poems that rise, surge, and stir us.” –Oliver de La Paz, author of Requiem for the Orchard
