Each and every one of the poems in Fatima's Touch resonates in the mind and in the heart long after the page is turned.
Lesley Hazleton, author of After the Prophet and The First Muslim
This is daring poetry that tries to examine and heal some of the great spiritual and political divides.
Coleman Barks, author of The Essential Rumi
Each one of these gorgeously crafted, deeply researched, and authentically felt poems is a multifaceted gem. Their generosity will guarantee Kahn's book a wide appeal.
Annie Finch, author of Spells, Calendars, and A Poet's Craft
In Fatima's Touch, Tamam Kahn liberates the woman and prophet Fatima from layers of hagiography, idealization that have made her into an Islamic icon. Even if you don't normally read poetry, you will find this a moving and eloquent journey.
Saadi Neil Douglas-Klotz, author of The Sufi Book of Life and Desert Wisdom
...a magisterial accomplishment as poetry, marrying narrative power to formal virtuosity, memorable and conducive to meditation.
Marilyn Hacker, National Book Award Winner, author of A Stranger's Mirror
