    Love and Strange Horses
    Book Description:

    "Trembles with belonging (and longing) and love and sex."--The New York Times

    "Nathalie Handal's Love and Strange Horses is riddled with provocative incantations that verge on a conjuring solidly based in this world and beyond. There's a subtle singing locked inside each poem that raises the stakes. This cosmopolitan voice belongs to the human family, and it luxuriates in crossing necessary borders. The pages are lit with scintillations that transport the reader to pithy zones of thought and pleasure."--Yusef Komunyakaa
