Fetch Your Mother's Heart  (poetry)

by Lisa Luxx


A lesbian relationship tries to survive berzerk love, while rage swells in gas stations and living rooms around them; erupting into nationwide revolution. Set in Lebanon, this collection of poems studies the symbiotic relationship between tenderness and violence at every layer of the characters\x27 lives, from intimacy to uprising.


A fictionalised retelling of Luxxs time in Beirut during the current crisis as a British Syrian lesbian woman, the book is written in forms typical to the region including the qasida and ghazal. Powerful, dynamic and uncompromising.
