RoofTops ofTehran by Sholeh Wolpe

"Sholeh Wolpe’s Rooftops of Tehran is that truly rare event: an important book of poetry. Brushing against the grain of Persian-Islamic culture, she sings a deep affection for what she ruffles. Her righteous aversion to male oppression is as broad as the span from Tehran to LA, as deep as a wise woman’s heart. This is a powerful, elegant book."

—Richard Katrovas, author of The Years of Smashing Bricks and Prague Winters

Sin--Selected Poems of Forugh Farrokhzad

"Sholeh Wolpé’s exquisite poetic voice and her superb command of the art of translation meld together in translations that exude the passion, defiance, and crackling wit that mark Forugh Farrokhzad’s poetry.
           Capturing her alternating mood, cascading images, and rippling emotions, Wolpé’s translations make Farrokhzad’s poetry burst into life in English. Wolpé is the best imaginable guide to this gifted Iranian woman’s poetic universe.

— Nasrin Rahimieh
Director of Dr. Samuel M. Jordan Center for Persian Studies at UCI, and author of "Missing Persons: Discovering Voices Iranian Cultural History

The Scar Saloon by Sholeh Wolpe

"Sholeh Wolpé's poems are political, satirical, and unflinching in the face of war, tyranny and loss. Talismanic and alchemical, they attempt to transmute experience into the magic of the imagined. But they also dare to be tender and funny lyrical moments."

— Chris Abani, author of Graceland, and Becoming Abigail
