Praise

“A queer song of emergency, this books floored me. Each poem is like a pound of flesh with a razor hidden inside. I’m here for the catholic paganism, the pain, the power, and the authority. Aaiún Nin’s writing is fearless, it’s in transit, and runs as if to catch up to language. These are hungry poems, constantly crossing the border between violence and desire. I will never forget the first time I heard them read. BROKEN HALVES OF A MILKY SUN is a testament to how great poetry can turn powerlessness into crushing, dazzling agency.”
—Olga Ravn, author of The Employees

“Incendiary and engrossing. Throughout this collection, Nin deals divine blows to white supremacy, colonialism, the heteropatriachy, Europe’s unending assault on human life emanating from across the Mediterranean, and other institutions of systematic violence and inhumanity. With cutting and illuminating art in its highest form, Nin offers us stunning portrayals of love, lust, sorrow, hope, happiness, and pain that are sure to resonate deeply with readers. This is life-giving literature that will echo in my mind and chest indefinitely.” 
—Massoud Hayoun, author of When We Were Arabs
