ECHO Book of the Week: Illuminations


Nizar Qabbani, Syrian poet of love, is a frequently requested poet in the library. This collection, “Illuminations” came a couple of months ago from al-Saqi bookshop in London. Is has already been loaned 3 times and it is not the only collection of Qabbani’s poetry that we have!

My love asks, what is the difference between me and the sky? The difference, my love, is that when you laugh, I forget about the sky
