Tavern recommends: City of Rivers by Zubair Ahmed

City of Rivers is hot off the press from McSweeney's (as a title in their McSweeney's Poetry Series), and we can't recommend it enough. Zubair Ahmed (Tavern author of Ashulia) has been receiving rave reviews for City of Rivers, with comparisons being drawn between his inventive and beautiful lyric poems and those penned by James Wright in The Branch Will Not Break. Not shabby.

Happy Reading!
