Grape Leaves
A Century of Arab-American Poetry
edited by Gregory Orfalea and Sharif Elmusa

6 x 9 • 336 pages
ISBN 9781566563383 • hardback • $17.95

Arab-American poetry is an especially rich, people-involved, passionate literature that has been spawned, at least until recently, in isolation from the American mainstream. This anthology reflects the current renaissance in the literature of what may be the latest ethnic community to assert itself.

Twenty poets are represented in this collection, fifteen of them living, five of them women. They start with Ameen Rihani and Kahlil Gibran and include celebrated contemporaries who write in Arabic or English or both.

Contributors: Kahlil Gibran o Ameen Rihani o Jamil Holway o Mikhail Naimy o Elia Abu Madi o Etel Adnan o D.H. Melhem o Samuel Hazo o Joseph Awad o Eugene Paul Nasser o H.S. (Sam) Hamod o Jack Marshall o Fawaz Turki o Doris Safie o Ben Bennani o Sharif Elmusa o Lawrence Joseph o Gregory Orfalea o Naomi Shihab Nye o Elmaz Abinader.

Media Reviews
"This anthology offers some real literary meat...The spicy variety of syntax and cultural backgrounds had me hooked."-David Gershator, Home Planet News
