From the Warring Factionsby Ammiel Alcalay
Dedicated to Srebrenica, the town where more than 7,000 Bosnian Muslims were massacred in 1995, Ammiel Alcalay's new book, from the warring factions, is a daring blend of lyric and document that remaps the world we inherit, from native New England to the Roman Empire, from the Gulf War to Palestine and the Balkans. Accompanied by a discussion with poet Benjamin Hollander, from the warring factions bears out award winning novelist Lynne Tillman's assertion that Ammiel Alcalay is "a unique and important figure in contemporary world literature." And the great Guyanese novelist Wilson Harris has called him a "visionary writer and poet." Author of After Jews and Arabs (Village Voice Top 25; London Independent Top 10, 1993), the cairo notebooks, and Memories of Our Future (Village Voice Top 25, 1999), Edward Said has called Alcalay "that rare thing a gifted prose writer, poet, and accomplished intellectual."
