Ali Alizadeh’s critical writing is way out of my intellectual league, so I approached this book of poetry expecting to struggle. Instead, I got a human voice, plainspoken, generous, sometimes raw, at other times laugh-out-loud funny, and at moments piercingly lyrical. There is impassioned politics, childhood reminiscence, love lyric, a number of verse essays. ( )
