Product Details


“Elegant…A moving, startling, enigmatic work of memory and loss that feels as fresh as when it was written.” —Kirkus Reviews
“A searching and poetic elegy for a life cut short. This slim volume packs a formidable punch.” —Publishers Weekly

“A tribute that evokes strong, vibrant memories…short but packed with nuanced observations…emotionally wrought and captivating.” —Library Journal

“A beautiful and heartbreaking meditation on what we lose as a result of religious dogma. Every sentence and every word in Leftah’s Endless Fall is so sharp and so precise. The visual world he creates through language is impossible to leave behind.” —Samra Habib, author of We Have Always Been Here

“A short book that carries one hell of a punch. It dives deep into worlds that are far removed from most readers, yet the way it is written—with brutality, honesty, and care—makes it a resonating, heartbreaking account of homophobia, isolation, and revisionist histories. Endless Fall kept me up with it for a fortnight, and when I was done I knew it would stay with me for a while.” —Danny Ramadan, author of The Foghorn Echoes

“Mohamed Leftah’s Endless Fall is as powerful as it is brief. Here a memory silently carried for decades comes alive with startling vividness. Here poetry is an instrument of justice, and writing is a prayer readers are invited to join in, a ‘gesture of reconciliation’ with a past, a friend, and a city. All sensuousness and grace, this text holds together the world’s beauty and filth toward a disillusioned promise of redemption. With characteristic elegance, Eleni Sikelianos’s translation does justice to the slow, suspenseful intensity of Leftah’s finely chiseled prose.” —Omar Berrada, author of Clonal Hum
