Tunsiya-AmrikiyaTunsiya is Arabic for Tunisian/female, and Amrikiya is Arabic for American/female. This naming makes a cross of empowerment even as it is it requires great effort to bear it. Muslim female power is real and undeniable in these coming of age poems. In this collection, arcs spark between Tunisian and American citizenship, male and female duality, sky and earth, and yes and no. This is one of the punchiest and powerful chapbooks to appear in recent years. Leila Chatti is someone to watch.” —Joy Harjo.  The Editors’ Selection from the 2017 Frost Place Chapbook Competition, Leila Chatti’s debut TUNSIYA/AMRIKIYA is due out this spring.
