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
