This stunning National Poetry Series winner invites readers behind the opaque curtain that has traditionally concealed the lives of modern and traditional Iranian women. Peckham's images alternately whet and sting the senses as rich chador fabrics and earthy cooking scents give way to scenes of women being persecuted and even killed. But it is love for family and culture that give this collection a gentle glow.

Susan Atefat Peckham was born in New Jersey to Iranian immigrant parents. This is her first poetry collection.
