http://www.92Y.org/VPC - Iraqi poet Dunya Mikhail has published four collections in Arabic and two in English translation. As part of National Poetry Month, she reads from her most recent work, Diary of a Wave Outside the Sea. "These are political poems without political rhetoric, Arabic poems without Arabic poetical flourishes, an exile's letter with neither nostalgia nor self-pity, an excavation of the ruins of her homeland," wrote the judges of the Griffin Prize, for which Mikhail was short-listed in 2006. Recorded April 8, 2010 at 92nd Street Y.
