These evocative and thought-provoking poems draw back the curtain on the men, women and children who suffer in silence, dismantling socio-cultural norms and giving a voice to those whose rights, freedom and wellbeing are so often compromised. The hard-hitting realism of Arif-Fear’s poetry uncovers the issues in an uncompromising way.

“It’s uncomfortable reading, the visual imagery is raw as if Ms Arif-Fear has cried her way through each stanza. The poetry is gripping; it’s a book which draws us through it at an incredible speed, as if you are on a train passing through the very worst and occasionally the best of human nature.” She Speaks We Hear.
