The Sadness of Others

Hayan Charara’s first collection of poems, The Alchemist’s Diary, confronted both the wonder and terror of the world. this new book, simultaneously quiet and fierce, delves deeper into the mystery of how we connect to each other and, perhaps more importantly, how we connect to ourselves. From the makeshift graves of people’s pets to his admiration of a neighbor’s mailbox, and even the price of tomatoes, Hayan Charara takes nothing for granted.
