Description

What elevates Teaching My Mother How to Give Birth, what gives the poems their disturbing brilliance, is Warsan Shire's ability to give simple, beautiful eloquence to the veiled world where sensuality lives in the dominant narrative of Islam, reclaiming the more nuanced truths of earlier times - as in Tayeb Salih's work - and translating to the realm of lyric the work of the likes of Nawal El Saadawi. As Rumi said, "Love will find its way through all languages on its own"; in Teaching My Mother How to Give Birth, Warsan's début, we witness the unearthing of a poet who finds her way through all preconceptions to strike the heart directly.

Highly. Highly recommend.

One of the most passionate and brilliant books I have ever read (well, heard) in my life. It’s so much to put into words but just.... just read it. It’s so worth it.

Average at its Best

I feel like the book should have been longer and the tone should have been less serious to make it more entertaining.
